Absolute Vintage is an application that allows users to create an Old Time vintage photo using faces of yourself or your friends.
Absolute Vintage is a really neat application and if you get creative enough, you can have a lot of fun with it. The app allows users to take a new photo or get an existing one from the photo library, take the persons face from the photo and overlay it on another body. The body in this case is a template that looks like a photo taken with an older camera from the 1930 to 1970 era.
There are 100 different body templates to choose from, 50 men and 50 women, and each one has the same distressed photo look as if the picture has aged for 50 years.
When the chosen photo is processed, users can make some minor edits to the persons face. These edits include being able to rotate and zoom using finger gestures, move the face around, mirror the face, change brightness, and hold the rotation or scaling.
Once users find a photo and chosen body to use, they can add up to 20 different accessories such as cigarettes, beards, glasses, hats and much more. The photo can then be saved to the photo library, emailed or uploaded to Facebook. Furthermore, users can access the “Frame Studio” where up to 30 different old time frames may be added to the photo. Users can also edit color effects with a Sepia effect to further age the look of the photo.
As a quick note, which I did not know right away, to quickly remove all of the accessories, simply shake the iPhone. This saves a ton of time instead of having to select each accessory individually to remove it.
Overall, the app can take a face and transform it into a person from the 1960’s or earlier era. The app is a lot of fun and would look really neat when making an entire modern day photo album with old time pictures.
Absolute Vintage is available in the App Store for $1.99.
