Turning New into Old Tutorial

With this post I decided to explain how I turn something that is not very old into something that looks old and weathered. This is not to say that this is the way that you should do it or how other people do it. It's just the way that I do. I always like the results in the end. Start off with your photograph(not the original but a copy). Then you open up your editing software, I use Picasa(it was a free download and came with my google) I recommend it to anyone especially beginners. What I did was turn it to B&W and then added more shadows to it. I sharpened it a little then saved. I then opened my GIMP(another FREE program that I highly recommend) to scale it down to 800 pixels on the longest side saved again. You then have your end result's ready to upload to your website.
