My latest column on is about aging photos—intentionally giving contemporary digital photos a simulated aged look. Enjoy!

Here’s the article description:

If you are the kind of person who likes to visit antique shops—or stores posing as antique shops—you may have noticed furniture that is intentionally “antiqued”. In a similar way, the process of aging a digital photo means intentionally making the photo look old so that it resembles an antique image rather than a contemporary one. Harold Davis believes that “aging” photos is a matter of aesthetics and depending on the image, can do a lot to enhance the subject. He goes over a few different processes and techniques to teach you how to “age” your digital photos.
