How to add a Matte Effect in Photoshop

This is a very popular effect because of the faded vintage look appeal.

I found this article on Pinterest but was not able to link back to the article on the author Christina Greve’s website.

A Curve & a Level adjustment is all that is required to achieve this effect.

Cool, you should be able to impress quite a few friends!
