Aperture Preset - (For 5Dmk II) Milky Shadows and Vintage Texture

This is for Canon 5DmkII files (and smaller)

There is also a version of this for Canon 7D

Few Curves controls one after the other, pushing and pulling back the shadows.

The last Curves has a custom texture (in the Brush) which adds a vintage vignette.

It’s actually pretty easy to create custom textures in Aperture, you only need to find the folder called “Masks” inside the Aperture Library. Than you can open this TIFF greyscale file in Photoshop and you can paste your own texture and overwrite the file. Close and open Aperture and the new Mask will be loaded.

You say that this texture is for a Canon 5D MkII as I have a Nikon D80 will it work.
I have been wanting to greate my own textures in Aperture for a while and now it looks as though I can. Will I always have to use the above as a template? Does it have some special code in it?
Will have a go tonight when home on my iMac.
Thank you

Hi Graham,
I wrote a little “how to use textures in aperture” on my blog:

To answer your question, yes you can use this preset with your Nikon D80.
The problem is that these textures are linked to the resolution of the original file.
If you use a smaller resolution, the texture will be cropped. If you use a bigger resolution file, there will be a problem because the texture (mask) will not be big enough to fill the image and you will have a black border.
If you follow the steps described in my blog post you will be able to create the template for your own camera. All you need to know is a little bit of Photoshop for copying and pasting textures.
Unfortunately it’s a bit of a pain to make a template for each camera.. So I thought it’s better to teach you guys how to do it and you can get it from there…

But let me know how it goes..

how can I get this look with Lightroom?

@ captevo
Unfortunately you can’t have this kind of textures in Lightroom without plugins.
If you want you can check out onOne plugins like photo frames (you can have textures instead of frames)
