Download Retro Gradient Coloring PSDs

Let me explain a little bit about my retro gradient coloring. It is actually a collection of photo colorings that I thought can safely be considered as somewhat retro or classic. All the color effects are achieved using gradient map in Photoshop. I've created some psd files for you to download. I know most of you already familiar with using PSD file, but for some who's still trying to figure it out, here's how you do it. Download the psd file. Open it in Photoshop. Open the image you want to apply the color effect in Photoshop. Drag the gradient map layer onto your image. Also, I have some other posts about gradient map. It'll be a wise idea for you to check them out if you're interested to learn more about gradient in Photoshop.

FYI, my retro gradient coloring is inspired by below vintage color palette. If you can see the similarity, that's good! If you don't, just go with it, will you? You can download the retro color swatch by clicking on below image.

@ Thomas

I don't think you need to mask anything. Just drag the Gradient Map layer onto your portrait image.
