Glass Plate Photo Look…

This is the look that I will be striving for in On30 when it happens. This is an update of an older post…

I’ve always liked old glass plate photos. Here are a few samples that I have done from PhotoShop. I’ll post my process of doing this on another page:


The crew at Joppa Iron Works had to create their own slag cars back in the day. This one was photographed outside of the rolling mill.

In town, Habersack’s Cafe has served thirsty customers since the early 1900’s and has a family heritage. The owner had a business relationship with GBS Brewery (which was close by) while many others were outlets for Monumental Beer.


Another old gondola on the grounds of the mill.


These pictures in PhotoShop require a base paper image. You can search for these on a site like Flickr if you type in “Textures” and search for the ones that are represented by old paper. It is interesting to me online that some people have such a hobby of looking for textures.
