Here’s another of those Web 2.0 design sites to help you occupy a few boring moments or maybe even hours …
In the same way as many of its contemporaries, MakeRetro.com does one thing and one thing only, but does it remarkably well. Upload a photo or enter a link and then choose from a number of different effects which can be combined to create the perfect imperfect picture, so to speak.
If the options seem rather complicated, try the link at the bottom of the page that says “Chose (sic) an effect wizard” which brings up a very useful gallery showing you the combinations that were used on each photo.
So as usual, dive in, have fun and experiment!
Strange Random Retro Quote:
“There’s a sort of movement that says that when classics are bypassed, they can become cool again. That’s what’s happening to gin. It’s part of the whole retro cocktail culture.” – Richard Brandes
