Add a Special Effect to Photos: The Vintage Effect

'60s and '50s Vintage

What is vintage?  The term vintage was originally used to describe the year in which wine was bottled. Later it was used to describe old cars. Eventually it described the look of clothing and a style of fashion. Today vintage applies to photos as well.

  •  The charm of vintage photos  Many people still enjoy the distinctive feel of black-and-white and sepia photos. Old color photographs of family members, location scenes, automobiles, and technology from the past strike a reminiscent chord with everyone. Transforming today's photos to vintage-style photos evokes that old-time feeling. Using a variety of photo-editing techniques, your current photos can easily be given the vintage look.

Warren is happy to transform present-day photos into vintage (a.k.a. retro) images. Ask the professional photo editor for help in magically recreating the charm of a bygone era for your present-day photos.

See how Warren, by applying unique digital styling, gave recent images a vintage look dating back to three eras.
