Happy Cinco de Mayo! I haven't posted a vintage edit for a long time but I do still love to digital editing techniques to duplicate the wonderful look of very old Photographs, like with this one that I edited online with a Chrome app called Pixlr o matic! It was fun but I still prefer my iphone apps and Gimp2 on my laptop! The main way that I get these looks is to just keep stacking effects until it looks done. I would love to share the step by steps with you but there really is no rhyme or reason to the way I edit any particular photo. each one is different and requires it's own unique process, so my best advice if you want to try this type of editing is to just experiment with different effects, save the results and re-edit it over and over until you like what you see.
