Picture This: Giving your photos that vintage look

Welcome to our 3d edition of Picture This. Today we have a little cheating trick for giving your pictures that vintage look we all adore so much.


 If you use Photoshop check out the link below for *free* Photoshop actions that will give your pictures that vintage look with just one click.
80 actions for a vintage look
40 vintage + retro Photoshop Actions
Just download, drag into Photoshop, got to Window and select Actions. The new pop-up will include the new actions you just added. Select the one you want to apply to your photo and click the play icon. Your image should now look fancy and new, or in this case vintage.



If you don't have Photoshop, check out Picnik and their selection of specialty filters.

Thanks for sharing these actions - they look amazing!

Okay - I'm usually fairly computer savvy, but I can't figure out how to download these actions... anyone figured it out? Thanks.
