Aging a Photograph - Make a person look older

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Jonathan Wolfson, Nov 25, 2004.

  1. Anyone know how to make a person look older? What filters should I
    use, to let's say make a 20 year old look 70?

    I'm not familiar with precise filter references in PS, but my suggestion is
    to consider two main components of aging. Accumulation of body fat or
    wrinkles, and gravity (features sagging under years of gravity).

    Can you employ filters to emulate these? My sense is you might be able to
    give the sense of a more porous complexion but insofar as wrinkles and
    gravity, you'd have to make changes by hand.

    I would agree with that though some of the body changes could be done with
    the liquify tool. Find an image to compare with and use a small hard brush
    or if you feel confident with it, the draw tool to draw the black lines
    first on a layer. Duplicate that layer and invert the color to white,
    schootch them over and up 1 pixel, play with the blending modes of both of
    the line sets untill you get creases in the skin then perhaps the dodge and
    burn tools to enhance the wrinkles, finally a nice hairy brush for a light
    dusting of facial hair and perhaps a few whiskers. Don't forget the age
    spots, I think the burn tool with a hard brush would make some marvy liver
    spots.

    Find a pic of an old person and selectivly blend the two images using
    multipal layers, opacity and the clone & patch tools.

    There may not be a filter yet, but give 'em 50 years. They'll look much
    older.
