Create Instagram Slumber Effect in Photoshop

Hey, folks! How are you all? I hope you are having a great weekend. You might remember the article that wrote last time i.e. Creating Instagram Juno Effect in Photoshop. This time, I am going to write another tutorial on Instagram effect. How about writing on How to Create Instagram Slumber Effect in Photoshop?

When you have used Instagram Slumber effect, you must have noticed that it generally gives yellow to an image and reduces the contrast but it manipulates an image much more than that. It adds a vignette, reduces colors, adds black & whitish effect (not much visible though).

So let’s dive into the steps. But before we proceed, I’d like to show you the final image.

Step 1: Reduce Contrast

The first we need to do is the reduction of contrast. Go to Image>Adjustments>Brightness/Contrast. Reduce the contrast to -50.

Note: If you want to make some adjustments in the photo like removing a person, swapping the face with a smiling face, adding a person, swapping the background, or anything else, just let me know. I can do it for you at a very minimal cost. You can hire me to edit your photo.

We still have too much contrast. Let’s duplicate the layer so that our contrast minimizes more with least effort. Press Cmd+J/Ctrl+J to duplicate a layer.

Step 2: Let’s Play with Adobe Camera RAW

Time to stack all the layers onto a new layer. Press Cmd+Opt+Shift+E/Ctrl+Alt+Shift+E for that. This will create a new layer at the top.

Go to Filter>Camera RAW filter. Give your image a nice and soothing effect. This can only be done if you don’t have too much contrast.

Don’t close the Camera RAW now.

Step 3: Add White Vignette

Let’s add a white vignette to the image. Keeping the Camera RAW opened, head over to “fx” tab. Add a nice looking white vignette.

Change the Style to “Paint Overlay”. Sliding the Amount slider to the right adds white vignette and sliding it to left adds a black vignette.

Step 4: Add Warm Effect

Go to Image>Adjustments>Photo Filter. Change the filter to Warming Filter 85 and increase the density to 37%.
