VintageScene is your one stop shop for making photos look "old-school" or "retro".

Vintage Scene is the best special effects software for photography enthusiasts, turning a new or recent photo into an old photo, one that looks like it was taken many years ago.

This unique algorithm automatically combines several classic effects: sepia tone, grain, darkened edges, distressed paper, along with the look of fade that with time has left behind an image with only bright blacks and darkening whites. Vintage Scene is easy to use but gives the user control to change each component for a unique look on each photo.

Includes hundreds of possible combinations, a visual preset system, and the ability to create your own presets for re-use.

Built with power to produce high resolution images this app will apply the most sophisticated photo filters to your images. Vintage Scene quickly and easily creates compelling photos for graphic artists, photographers, & hobbyist who rely on a high quality end result.

Nice app-needs a bit of tweaking


I find that it does have a lot of variety it just needs an option that lets you reduce the size of the borders of the effects as most effects don’t work well if the image comes to close to the border of the picture as it blurs out the faces. As it stands now the photo’s have to be taken zoomed out otherwise things don’t look as good

Photoshop Plugin On the Go!


As a Photoshop professional, when I sit down to create the same effects I get with Vintage Scene, I use some pretty expensive plugins. I get the exact same quality of photo manipulation in this app on my iphone, on the go, that I can get sitting at my computer 3X longer. There are so many choices you can make, colors to change, amount of effect, and saving it to my PhotoStream, I have the image at home when I get there. One of the coolest things is taking images on my computer and uploading them on PhotoStream to manipulate when I'm bored waiting in line at the post office. This a great app, and I'm recommending it to all my friends! If I could give it 10 stars I would!!!

Could be five stars


But not yet. It crashes every photo. I think when they get the bugs worked out, this will be a very fine addition to Jixi's line of apps. It's a very promising app, but I'd like to see some things besides the bug fixes – such as, a paintbrush and mask. For instance, I'd like to be able to mask the eyes of my cat, so that they are either unaffected -or have slider so that you can control the amount of the effect you want to apply. This is the one big thing missing from all Jixi apps that I can think of – and my own most of them. You don't have a paint brush/Mask capability, so that you can interact with your photos more. Having said that, Jixi will have another winner in this one when they update the bugs out of it.
