This app is a pretty scientific experiment in photo processing.

At RNI we wanted to make our photos look more special with less effort and more fun. So we created RNI Flashback — an app that works like film not like an app.

Using Flashback is simple. It generates editing options for you, and you choose. Because you’re the boss.

Unlike other apps, RNI Flashback has no pre-defined filters. Instead it mixes virtual 'chemicals' and creates a unique look every time you press the button. This transforms digital medium making it more true to life and more refreshing.

Flashback is created for everyone. But professional photographers and aficionados familiar with shooting film will especially love it. Because Flashback works more like photographic film rather than like digital software. Unlike any other existing software, Flashback uses real film data and simulates the response of real film layers to light when processing digital colours.

Some of its looks can be weird, some can render skintones too red. But some will be just absolutely fabulous, making for film-like colour harmony and colour separation, far beyond what’s achievable in any other piece of software you have ever tried.

Experience RNI Flashback now. Bring custom artistic flair into your photos and never get bored again.

The joy of happenstance


This app provides some of the happy accidents that result from shooting with film and using photo chemicals to produce images, while allowing the tweaks we have come to anticipate in digital photo apps. The requests I see to save presets are understandable, but I enjoy the element of surprise when applying these films to my images. Do note: this (to my knowledge) is only for images on your device; it is not a camera. I find that actually to be a plus - just one way to make the app more streamlined and intentional in purpose: fun and joy in beauty and surprise.

Save presets/recipes


As an avid film shooter I can honestly say that RNI Flashback is the most realistic film app ever made. It's adjustment sliders have really filmic attributes, unlike anything I've seen. For instance, the "highlights" slider actually makes the skin tones look incredibly filmic, to the likes of Kodachrome. It's unique to Flashback. RNI's other apps don't work the same way, nor does professional software like Lightroom. My ONLY complaint is the inability to save "recipes." I spend quite some time clicking through the films, getting the look just right. I'd like to use that same look on multiples photos, but it's impossible. Please add the ability to save presets to this near-perfect app.

One word : Amazing


This app has given every single one of my photos the best look after use that I can even imagine ! Ever since I got this app I have received several compliments on my pictures on Instagram ! Get this app it’s great totally worth it! It might take a few tries but once you find the preset you want it’s perfect
