Great Ways to Get a Vintage Photo

Do you want your photos to stand out a bit more in the sea of images being shared on the internet every day? Do you like to use filters and effects to make your photos look better? If yes, then one of the quickest and easiest ways to add a really nice mood to a photo is by making it look like a vintage photograph.

The good thing about this whole process is that it’s not difficult at all to turn a photograph vintage. All you need to do is use a reputable photo editor to apply a filter to your images. In this guide, we will discuss two very different editors that help you add vintage effects to your photos.


Created by the software giant Autodesk, Pixlr-o-matic is the go-to vintage photo editor for those people who want a quick way to edit their photos online. The interface is simple and to the point. You have a series of filter ranging from those with bright colors to monochrome ones at the bottom of the screen. You can sift through them and see their effect on your photo quite easily before choosing one of them. The collection of vintage filters this editor has is quite good, so it may be worth a shot if you’re looking for something that doesn’t need to be downloaded and can be used anywhere with an internet connection.

Oh and if it wasn’t clear already, Pixlr-o-matic is completely free to use.


If a web app is too simplistic for you and you don’t want to use filters that may lead to image degradation, then Luminar is the best image editor you can download. It is a paid editor, but what it offers in return is well worth the money.

Luminar is a RAW photo editor, which means you can be sure that the edits to your images will be non-destructive if you use RAW files. Other than basic image adjustments, Luminar has a variety of high-end filters including a completely vintage photo editing section that can be use quickly and easily. Just choose a preset that you like and then dive into detailed editing to get the look you want. So if you want a software that lets you create professional-grade vintage images, Luminar is a great choice.
