Over the last few months I’ve been writing articles for Soura Magazine. The articles are reposts of articles here on the blog, but updated and modified to fit better with the magazine. My next article is due very soon and I’m lacking two photos because I’m unable to contact the photographers. Here’s the article we’re republishing: Warning: These 9 Photoshop Techniques May Result in Great Photos.

I’m missing the following photos (refer to the article here on the blog to see the example photos). The other 7 photographers have already agreed to allowing use of their photo.

    A photo that looks older than it really is. Desaturated colors, imperfections, and even digital photos shot TTV.
    A photo with texture applied.

If you’d like to have your photo published in the next issue of the magazine, leave a comment with a link to one or more photos for me to review. I’m not asking to grab the rights for the photo, I just need permission to publish it in the magazine — by leaving a comment with a link to your photos, you grant me the right for this one-time use. I’ll contact you if I select your photo, and I’ll need the image at or above 1500px on the long edge.

I can’t offer any payment for the image use at this time, but I can have the publisher send you a copy of the magazine when it comes out. And yes, I will be, and have been, using my own photos for the magazine articles without payment — so I’m not asking anybody to do something I wouldn’t do myself. Its just a cool magazine and I’m happy to contribute.

Again, leave a comment with a link to your “vintage” or “texturized” photos if you’d like to be published (with attribution). I need to have the article and photos shipped off before the new year, so the selection process will be quick.

Hey Brian… Maybe this photo can help with both?

I’ve got a whole set of authentic TTVs that you could use if they fit what you are looking for:

ps – u will need to be logged into flickr to view them, some are marked as restricted, though they are very tame

Here are a few of mine:

I also have a few Photoshop related tutorials on my site (dubtastic.com) and have co-authored a book on Photoshop.

This is awesome, gang! Thanks for the quick response from so many of you! I’ll leave the comments open for probably another 18 or 24 hours before I pick out some photos.

Here are some of mine that have texture added to them. (Of course I would submit the version without the border and watermark, if you chose one of mine)


The last is my favorite!

Hey, Brian! We just did a vintage wedding recently, and I’ve always been partial to vintage edits. There are some posted on the blog: http://jeffandlisaphotography.com/blog

Not sure if it’ll fit your needs, but it would be hard to get anything more vintage than a colour scan of HP5…. http://flickr.com/photos/the_wolf_brigade/3141201276/in/set-72157610781024862/

December 31, 2008 6:22 am

Oh, and I forgot about this totally abused vintage negative. I dropped it right after developing and it looks like it was rescued from a box bought from a thrift store http://flickr.com/photos/the_wolf_brigade/2888734682/

Here are the photos that I want to contribute with, they are for the vintage theme:


The posted sizes are smaller than what you requested, but if you would like to use the photos let me know and I can send the image at the necessary size and without the watermark, if necessary

December 31, 2008 7:42 am

Hi, this is my most recent vintage style photo..

I hope it fits your needs.

December 31, 2008 8:59 am

Holy cow… you guys are awesome! I think the hard part will be picking only two photos from all of these. Thanks guys!

December 31, 2008 12:23 pm

Questions: Will we get credit for the pics in the magazine? And maybe a link to our website? If so, I have a few texture and vintage pics in this set:

December 31, 2008 1:34 pm

Name, yes. Website, probably not but I can try.

December 31, 2008 1:39 pm

A few images for you to consider for the “texture added” need.


December 31, 2008 2:26 pm

OK, I had to pick out the photos so I can get the article out in time. I’ll write a quick blog post about my selection in the days to come. Thanks to everybody for participating in this! You guys are great!
