    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?

    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.
