Photoshop Tutorial: Airbrushed Film Poster Style Photo Effect

10282 ratings | 256618 views
In today's Photoshop tutorial I'm going to show you a mix of filters and adjustments we can apply to a photograph to mimic the retro style airbrushed painted look associated with classic film posters. Imagine the poster art for original Star Wars trilogy, the Indiana Jones movies, and pretty much any action/adventure film from the 80s! They all feature incredibly life-like depictions of the actors and characters, which are almost like photos, but they have a clear hand painted appearance with subtle brush strokes, outlining marks and quite high contrast with vibrant colours. 📦 Join my mailing list and get a FREE design resources bundle! https://spoon.graphics/freebundle ⭐️ Get 10% off your Squarespace website: http://squarespace.com/spooner ► Western Cowboy Photo from Shutterstock - http://spoon.graphics/2l0WBmi ► Old Paper Texture from Pexels - http://spoon.graphics/2l122Sc #Photoshop #PhotoshopTutorial #AdobePhotoshop Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator design tutorials from Chris Spooner of Spoon Graphics.

Nice tutorial.
Jyn Meyer Design (4 months ago)
Exactly what I was looking for thank you! Although I was having a hard time understanding everything you were saying. " Hold the alt key while clicking the options create a copy at the top of the layer stack." On a mac the alt key IS the option key....

Phenomenal tutorial. Altered a few things, but came out perfect.

If you'd lose that awful accent, perhaps it would easier to understand you and would get more out of your video !

Great vid tutorial, easy to follow and straight to the point without any added fluff. Thank you.

This is so fucking phantastic!!! Would you mind do a "full poster", just like Stranger Things or Kung Fury as an example poster like 80s style? There's nothing like that on youtube or wherever I searched so it will for SURE generate extremely heavy view rating. Would be the dream! Kindest regards !
richard mendoza (5 months ago)
Awesome tutorial, Chris. I'll have to try this technique on a few of my portraits. As with any recipe, I'm realistic that I may have to 'suit to taste'. Thanks for posting!

What a fantastic tutorial. Straight to the point. Quickly going from one step to the next without useless chatter. I love that you understand that there is in fact a pause button but there is no "skip useless dialogue about nothing" button.

One crucial note thats not stated in the video, when you Desaturate the layer (3:46) , make sure you DESELECT first. Otherwise you will only be desaturating the highlight layer, not the entire image, as demonstrated.
Sam Oliver (9 months ago)
Great one!👍

Just airbrush the Damm thing ,it would look better in my opinion!

tutorial is very dependant on the picture, tried this out and im experienced with photoshop so i knew what i was doing and even still followed the steps exactly as shown and the image came out looking like crap, it was good image, high contrast and high quality, but the effect looks horrible
Ed Schirra (5 months ago)
This could be for two reasons. 1. Check your PS version. Filters change all over the place. 2. Check your image as you build it. Have the screen in front of you as you work and compare and match. That way you can check the content and quality and style. 3. Images contain different lighting and shadow, highlight etc. data so the image will not always work to a series of settings. (Refer to no 2 in my note here). Last, I am experienced with Photoshop too (and literally 000's of artworks) and my experience told me to follow the steps but to adjust to the picture. If you sent me your picture I could show you what you might have missed but I think you should be able to crack it. A good Photoshop artist is what everyone wants to be. A great Photoshop artist means hours of paint-staking work and not giving up.
skunkherder (5 months ago)
I have had good results with this on many pictures, though you may have to tweak some adjustments a bit if you have a super big pic. Also, a HUGE difference between the oil paint function on the CC version and CS6. CC is much improved, and this make a huge difference in the end result.
Armadyllo (5 months ago)
Very true. I wonder if there's another tutorial out there for this effect
Alexandre Lopes (10 months ago)
great tutorial!
peblezQ (11 months ago)
Lol, I couldn't figure out how to do this a few years back, so I've been spending the past few years just straight up painting people to get this effect. Haha

Fritz Kevin Cortes (11 months ago)
It's great Video, but I'm not a fast learner, i hope you slow down a bit, not everybody can keep up with your phase
Reese Ray (6 months ago)
You gotta pause the video sometimes. That's what I do.
Salim Asaad (1 year ago)
Sell this as an action to skip the steps.
D Mafia (1 year ago)

how about phottoshop cs 2 there is no oil paint//?///??? w
Kazu (1 year ago)
You should have explained what document size you're using since most filters in photoshop are in relation to that. A 2px oilpaint has more impact on a 200x200 image than on a 2000x2000 image.
Matthew Nathe (10 months ago)
just adjust accordingly until you get the same look
Michael Prostka (1 year ago)

Honor MacDonald (1 year ago)
Wow... There's a lot of Photoshop content on YouTube and only so many hours of viewing time available, so I don't subscribe to many channels after just one video, you I sure did here. Fantastic work, clearly taught, without wasting my time. Thank you very much. :)

Your voice is bloody awful. You need to enunciate your words better. I couldn't follow half of your stuff. Love the style, too bad I couldn't understand what you were saying most of the time !

Your face is bloody awful.
Matthew Nathe (10 months ago)
maybe you should take an English hearing class...he sounds find to anyone accustomed to the English language
Briscoe the Collie (11 months ago)
I don't know what you're on about, his accent's the same as mine and I understood him, a bit rude saying your voice is bloody awful to be honest.
Sean Tubridy (1 year ago)
That’s your problem. Try listening to people with different accents more often and then you’ll understand.
Michael Gray (1 year ago)
Sounds fine to me. Maybe your listening skills need improvement.
Proyoska (1 year ago)
Whenever I apply the oil paint filter it gives more of a swirl at 2 then a brush stroke. Is there any reason for it or how to get a better brush stroke look?
Random Scandinavian (1 year ago)
I also got a very swirly look when I tried it. In some parts more than others. I will try it again and maybe use the smudge tool to make some more controled brush strokes.
Ray Dillon (1 year ago)
Very cool! Thanks for ruining the lives of illustrators everywhere. Ha! :D Hey, one thing to add, they usually put a bit of a glow around the characters. Like a splattery airbrush outlining the characters and seperating them from each other and background. And an overall splatter covering most of the poster.
