Vintage-ize Your Iphone Photos

Posted by Scott

IMG_0665.JPG3023222101_cf7c4e6f36_b.jpgAfter I posted about the Poladroid app some people were asking about a Lomo version of the concept. My friend Erik Pettersson has released a set of photo processing apps for the iPhone which give your digital shots that vintage warmth. There’s a Vint Red, Green and B&W plugin, each treating the colors a bit differently. My favorite is the Green, it definitely gives you that low ISO Lomo feel complete with vignetting. More examples are available on Erik’s Flickr.You can download the Vint plugins from the iTunes store or on your iPhone, one is free, the other two are $1 each.

Erik also sent the photo below he says he found at his parent’s house and which was the inspiration for the plugins. Everything looked cooler in the 70’s in Sweden.

I would love it if something like Vint was available for Mac OS X (or as a web app) to run these effects on my high quality photos.

(I know Photoshop has these filters available, but I don’t have Photoshop.)

On my way to the app store…

Hey Erik,

Love the app, but I have a suggestion for the next version. It would be great if you had the option of taking any photo in your camera roll and apply the vint filter to it (like in Camerabag), rather than having to take the photo directly in the vint app.
