Get real film look while shooting digital.
At RNI we always wanted to transfer the true character of analogue film to digital medium. So we did by digitising our library of analog slides and negatives, building their profiles and packaging those profiles into a lightweight and easy to use mobile app.
RNI Films is a great mobile companion for those who appreciate the beauty of analogue photography. And this little app enables creators to bring the artistic flair of film into their mobile workflow.
Many professional photographers find our film profiles to be more sophisticated and true to real film than rivals. That's because we work really hard to recreate every subtle aspect of real film, with great attention to general accuracy, colour separation, skin tones and grain texture.
RNI's film-simulating expertise is proven by time and appreciated by photographers from all over the globe. Our desktop and mobile solutions have been praised in a number of independent online reviews, so don't hesitate to search for RNI Films online to find out more about our products, philosophy and approach.
The RNI Films' filters are born from real film stocks and split into categories that include negative, slide, instant, black & white and vintage. The app comes with a generous introductory package of free film filters. Also additional filter packages can be added via in-app purchase.
Use RNI image adjustment tools to make sure your images perfectly meet your creative vision. You can crop and rotate, alter the brightness, contrast, and colour, enhance shadows and highlights, add vignette and real film grain, and much more.
RNI Films supports RAW. Some minor image artefacts may bee seen while editing RAW in the app's viewport which uses draft mode. But those artefacts won't be there on export. And generally the quality of the output of this little app is comparable with professional desktop software.
Share your photos to your social networks directly from the app. Supported networks include Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
The RNI Films app is simple, intuitive and straightforward to use. It’s designed with high efficiency in mind, from opening a photo to sharing the result. No clutter, no extra taps to ‘hide/unhide that panel’, no unnecessary confirmation steps – everything is streamlined and simple for your convenience.

Ratings and Reviews
The simulations on offer here especially the free ones, are of top quality there is no doubt. On par with VSCO’s film simulations in my view. I will definitely consider purchasing the other packs but before I do I would like to see the User interface change a little. The screen real estate in my opinion isn’t used to the fullest and I often find myself wishing that I could view more of my photo to edit. The editing tools are somewhat limited also but I still really enjoy this app. I look forward to seeing if things improve and possibly an iPad version appears 🤷🏼♂️. Update; I caved in and bought them all 😂
Second best after real film
I shoot both film and digital so I pretend to know what I’m talking about.
From the film shooter’s perspective RNI Films is not a direct replacement of film but something that comes quite close.
The app is made with great deal of love and care, and deep understanding of analogue photography. The film filters are second to none and all the tools feel very responsive and direct.
My favourite piece is the exposure tool. It’s not the same as in other apps and seems to be modelled after the analogue exposure.
It’s literally like in the darkroom - you increase the exposure and it brings up more from the shadows without blowing the highlights. Absolutely brilliant.
Another hidden gem is the grain tool. Which creates real(!) film grain not just noise. If you shoot film you can instantly tell the difference.
Generally it feels like a Leica of photo apps. It’s stripped down to the essentials and delivers very simple pure experience and fantastic output.
This is such a handy app. It’s also very easy to use. It really makes my photos have the wow factor without all that over editing thing you see in other peoples photos. It really gives off the feel I want, old school look. It’s got so many amazing free filters. Would definitely recommend. From a self employed photographer. I am now going to buy the computer version for all my raw photos,
