Tutorial - A Vintage Effect by james-dolan Tutorial - A Vintage Effect by james-dolan
If your gradient map looks like it hasn't done it right try desaturating (Ctrl+shift+U or using the the HUE colour slider mask) and it might make a big difference. Also once finished try playing around with levels or curves to get a nicer and more contrasty result!

Nothing really else to say here, it's all up there ^^ Apart from if you get stuck comment me below, :XD: , enjoy!
