This tutorial will focus on taking a colour image and editing it, to create a retro looking black and white photo with a vignette.
Step 1) Load iPhoto on your iPad and choose a photo from the left-hand side scroll menu to edit – To select a photo, just tap on it.
Step 2) Once you have a photo to work with, tap the edit button which you will find at the top right of the screen.
Step 3) Once you have tapped on edit, a bar will appear at the bottom-left of the screen – Choose the last option on the right-hand side of the bar – This is the Effects button
Step 4) After you select Effects, a pop-up swatch book will appear, choose the Black & White option from this menu.
Step 5) With Black & White selected, a bar at the bottom of the screen will appear which represents different tones – Sliding your finger along the bar will adjust the lightness of your newly created monochrome image – Play with it, sliding backwards and forwards, until you are happy with the result.
Step 6) At the side of the bar which adjusts the Black & White effect, there are 3 more buttons – The first one will add a vignette to your photo – Vignettes are great if you want to draw attention to a specific part of an image.
Step 7) Select Vignette by tapping on it’s button – Now place 2 fingers on your image and use a pinching gesture to move the frame around, until you reach a desired look.
Step 8) If you are happy with your new image, tap on the share button to either send it to Twitter or Facebook, email it to a friend or simply save it to your Camera Roll.
There you have it, you have learned how to create a vintage looking image in just a few minutes.
