Give your photos a retro game look!

Do you ever pine for the nostalgic aesthetics from your old Apple IIe, Nintendo Gameboy or Sega Genesis? Want to see the world as if pixellated through your Commodore 64 or Atari 2600?

ConsoleCam lets you see your photos as they would look on over 90 vintage consoles and computers with hundreds of variations. See what your puppy would look like on a ColecoVision, or your friend's face on a Macintosh 128k, then easily share or save the results.

ConsoleCam faithfully converts your pictures into retro images accurate for the selected console. We've ransacked technical manuals, ROM images, and our childhoods to find the technical capabilities and quirks of each system.

Not sure which console to use? ConsoleCam automatically picks a starting console and makes it quick and easy to try something different.

All consoles are included for free! No in app purchases required.

Absolutely horrid output - I LOVE IT !!!

Wow, does this bring back memories!! This reminds me of the absolutely horrible graphics of yesteryear when I was in school. It's sooooo hard to believe how far we've come in the past 30 years. Fantastic list of old school systems to choose from... Not sure why previous poster said no output was available. I was able to save to Photos on my iPad Pro without issue (final output is 716x960px). Too bad it doesn't come with the thermal printer like the Timex Sinclair ZX81 used to have… lol Well done! :)

Incredibly Creative and Fun!

This is an incredible app. I have looked for something like this for a long time. I am a retro computer enthusiast, and this lets me simulate the graphics of more systems than I could ever imagine, including several rare ones! If you are a retro computer collector or just someone looking for a new photo effect, this is the app for you!

Great pixel filters for photos!

It does exactly what it states and does it very good. The only issue is the cropping stays throughout the app, until you exit out of it. Changing the settings works sometimes, but not 100%. Hopefully this minor bug will be fixed in a future update. One feature I'd love to see is the ability to pixelate videos. Overall, great job developer(s)!
