Hey, guys! How are you?  Welcome to another Instagram tutorial. Last time I showed you how to create Instagram Crema filer in Photoshop. This time, let me show you how to create Instagram Ludwig filter in Photoshop.

Ludwig filter adds a bit of redness and yellowness in the photo and boosts up the contrast. We are going to do the same in Photoshop with the easiest way possible. This is a short tutorial and should not take more than 10 minutes to complete.

But before we begin, let me show you the final image:

Isn’t the photo start to look exactly same as Ludwig filter? But still there’s one more step to do.

Step 4: Add Vignette Effect

Let’s add vignette effect. The easiest way to do it by using Camera RAW filter. But before using that, we need to stack all the layer onto a new layer. Press Cmd+Opt+Shift+E/Ctrl+Alt+Shift+E to do it.

This will create a new layer at the top of your layer panel. To make you understand better, the newly created layer is just a merger of all layers.

Time to open the Camera RAW. Press Shift+Cmd+A/Shift+Ctrl+A to open the image in Camera RAW.

Straightaway move to the Effects tab and decrease the amount to -23. This will add a nice looking vignette to the photo.
