Photoshop Photo Effect: Creating A Gritty, High-Contrast, and Desaturated Look

Photoshop CC tutorial showing how to give photos a trendy, gritty, high-contrast, and desaturated look.

You’ve probably seen a similar grungy effect in movie posters and advertisements. Nike has used it a lot lately, or at least something similar.

This effect is actually quite simple; all we’ll use is two adjustment layers, and one filter. One of those adjustment layers is the “Color Lookup” adjustment layer which is new in Photoshop CS6.

If you have CS5 or older don’t worry about it, I’ll be showing you an alternative technique, that should give you very similar results.
