    The current version of ArtRage does not have any type of filter methods or color editing options like one may be accustomed to with programs like Photoshop. However, you can duplicate the effect using layers and blend modes.

    Try the following steps:
    1 - Open your completed image and merge all the layers

    2 - Create a new layer

    3 - Edit the paper settings for the new layer so that the opacity is at 100% and change the layers color to pure black.

    4 - Change the Blend mode for the black layer to "color" (you should now have a black and white image)

    5 - Create another new layer

    6 - Edit the paper settings for the new layer so that the opacity is at 100% and change the color to the follow RGB values:
    Red: 174
    Blue: 111
    Green: 78
    7 - Change the Blend mode for this new layer to "color"

    8 - Adjust the opacity for the layer as needed

    You may want to try adjusting the color value of the second layer as well, as the numbers I provided here were only what I used when experimenting.

    Here is the original image and the resulting image:

    Did you remember to change the color of the second new layer to a sepia-like color?

    (EDIT) - I created an ArtRage file (.ptg) demonstrating the steps above. You can download the file from my MediaFire account using this link

    here's a similar effect to make a picture old.Made by Sweedie

    Sometimes it helps to wade through all the tutorials ,and see if you find something of your needs
    Just say: "Rage It", because we already know it's art.
