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
Favorite camera app for filters!
This app does everything I want it to! I love, love, love the filter options! I've bought all the packs except for the black & white one. My favorite are Slide and Vintage. 😍 100% worth every penny. The Kodak ones are excellent! The devs clearly did their research for how these cameras of the time would make your picture look.
I would have initially complained about the cost, but I've been using this app constantly since I bought it back in December. I can't say enough good things about it. I feel I've definitely gotten my money's worth.
I would love to have this as an option to export to, like some competitors are doing with their apps. Meaning when you load up the picture from your Photos app and click edit and then the three dots to export it, it gives you the option to load your photo into into the 3rd party app right there. 😊 Til then it will stay on my home screen!
It would also be nice to have the option of how we want to save the image file type like some other apps (such as Camera+). I hate making something so pretty and see it compressed so much thereafter. Please consider changing your compression algorithm. ☺️💖
Photos turn out fantastic. But functionality needs to improve
Love this so for what it can do to my photos, but it's a pain to use when you have a series of photos that you want processed the same way. Instead of a simple copy/paste of settings, the app makes you go through all of the settings changes for each and every photo. It gets incredibly tedious and takes the joy out of editing photos in the app.
I also wish that the app would export full resolution/quality JPEG rather than the compressed and down sampled images that we're given.
Other than those two qualms, I'm actually quite happy with the images that I've been getting from RNI. They're way better than the overdramatic stuff that comes out of VSCO. The film simulations are pretty close to the real thing too, especially the Kodak Portra and Ektar films.
Very very close to perfect
#1 There are only a few things that need slight improvement. When using the “sharpen” filter to blur and soften images slightly it creates a very thin pitch black boarder around the image. It would be nice if it could crop the image just slightly when applying a blur so you don’t have to crop in post.
#2 Some filters you can only apply 6% and up of an effect (about 80% of them) if you try to do 5% of an effect it snaps it to zero, which is not ideal, especially if you want to do a slight slight edit.
Besides that it’s a great app
