I'm curious what effect you're doing or what you're adjusting to mute out the color vibrancy and make the player look slightly weathered...
Is that just a contrast/intensity thing? or are you muting out reds, or what... I use Corel, love it... it has similar effects and adjustments to photoshop, but I find it just as capable... but things are called different ways.
Let me know!
I'm using a plug in called "Topaz Adjust 4" and messing around with the contrasts until I get it right. Then I just use a scratch brush and place scratches around randomly
