Even though you can always take crisp, clear, ultramodern images with your iPhone, sometimes you just want to experience the perfectly imperfect effects of vintage film. 1967: Retro Filters & Effects brings back all the tones, grain and light leaks you’d get from old-school analogue cameras – minus the bulky housing and smelly darkroom chemicals.
With the app’s minimalist interface and more than 220 filters, editing your photos to evoke the swinging ‘60s only takes a few taps.
The app’s creators studied 64 types of real film to develop a variety of beautiful and accurate vintage tones and effects. All the filters are divided into collections, where you can find different colour emulations and effects such as bokeh and scratches.
Once you select a filter, tap it again to see the effect subtly change. Maybe the light leak moves to the right side of the image or the scratches appear more prevalent.
Each filter has more than 30 variations to cycle through by tapping. Adjust the opacity and dust sliders until the image is just right.
