This was always going to happen. Following on from the success of Hipstamatic, Instagram and all those other filter-based photo apps comes a new website that lets you create a retro image from any photo online.
It is simple stuff too. You visit the site, upload your image and then mess with a series of parameters including darkening edges, lightening the middle, desaturating colours and much more. Then you can save the image and upload it to your favourite social networking site.
It seems to work well too. Below is our attempt to cheer old Rupert up with a bit of retro gloss – not entirely sure it has been successful.
