How do I make an image look dark in Photoshop?
Can anyone give me an idea of the filter used on this image:
What I have tried
1) Add a black layer above my image and set the opacity to 60% - this darkens the image.
2) On the image itself: adjustments > Gradient Map > Foreground to background (reversed) for colours #ffffff to #a3261a.
I have Photoshop CS3 and i'm looking to copy this effect but don't know how. I'm a developer, not a designer, so not realy sure what tutorial to google for :)
Having found the "original" of this image, I placed it below your example...
By adding a black layer over top (as you did) and reducing its opacity to 50% as well as increasing the master saturation of the original image by 10%, I was able to achieve a nearly pixel-perfect duplicate.
