    So, this may or may not be more suited to the beginners section but its more about editing (it just so happens i am a beginner to editing).
    Anyways, I was wondering if anybody has any hints or tips about making photos look sorta retro/vintage?
    This is what i got on my first attempt and still not sure if i like what i done or not. Not so much looking for C&C on the actual photography (although if its productive i wont sneer at it), more, just about if anybody feels i have achieved a vintage look.

    Looks vintagey, but just sort of. I would try maybe lowering the contrast just a bit, as well as the saturation.

    The edit definately looks faded, but only because we have the original to compare it to.

    I used a very basic app called toycamera, I havn't had any other more attempts but it's something I'm interested in doing more of.
    Anybody else done any of thins? What would you use?

    it will look even better if you darken down the four corners.

    I like to cross process for my vintage feel.

    That looks really cool. I typically lift the blacks and add some magenta or cyan in the darks. Gives it an older feel.
