  • This album cover is really cool, but how did they achieve the look?

    Can it be done in RAW? Looks like a slight sepia filter and some grunge brush but I'm not sure. Can anyone provide any insight? Thanks!

      real quick glance...HDR with heavy filters and textures applied.

          I am assuming you are talking about the texture, and/or the aged look. Use a photo editor that supports filters, and layers. As Bladez said, there are many filters for adding an old photo look, and the texture is easy. Find a texture like an old cracked wall, change it to gray-scale if you need, and then put it on a different layer under the main photo. Then toggle through layer blending modes to get the effect you want
          .

            Thank you, that was very helpful indeed. And I was referring to the overall look (textures, color dynamics, etc.). I think the main components are HDR and textures.

                If you own Photoshop, you can achieve this effect by using Vibrance Adjustment Layer to remove some colors(you can even use Curves Adjustment Layer).
                Then you can use the Color Balance(or the Photo Filter) Adjustment Layer.
                Afterwards, you merge all layers into one and you duplicate this layer and you apply Highpass(Filter>Other>Highpass) and then you set this layer to Overlay.
                And lastly, you just add a grunge brush.

                I hope this was helpful.

                PS: I didn't try it, but this should work.

                    I Think HDR and filters are the key for this.
