If you have Handy Actions, this Curves preset can be called after running the Curves action found there. You can use this preset to create an old faded snapshot look for your image. It could be useful on scrap pages or ads, or anywhere you need a faded look to an image.
Add-O-Matic will accept Curves presets since version 8, so installing it to Elements is as simple as unzipping it to your desktop and dragging it into the AOM from there. Then look for it in the drop menu of the Curves dialog:
To use it, first run Handy Actions’ Curves action, and select the preset. Then you can do additional tweaking of the overall curves, if desired (maybe an ‘S’ curve, or the “Inverted ‘S’ Curve” action).
