Description from the Publisher

Brilliant and easy image editing for nostalgia-fans and creative amateur photographers

  • Retro filters, which allow you to reproduce the peculiarities of many historic cameras and professional film material and give your photos a touch of analogue photography.
  • Lo-Fi-simulation creates images, which give the impression that the photo was taken with analogue equipment.
  • Fully automatic application of filters on digital photos.

Photomizer Retro has one thing above all: A great nostalgia-function in order to give you the possibility to create charming retro images. The software turns the image editing upside down and helps you to give new photos an old splendour. The simulation of old cameras and black-and-white films helps you to revive the very special charm of past eras. For this purpose, the program was equipped with special retro filters in order to reproduce the peculiarities of many historic cameras and film material that has not been available for a long time.

Together with the new frames and the surprisingly effective Lo-Fi alternative you guarantee a lot of surprising effects in your digital slide shows and photo books. By the way, Lo-Fi is the simulation of a nearly extinct type of photography with simple equipment, like for instance a pinhole camera.

As intuitive as could be: A user interface sets the standard

Photomizer Retro, like all the other Photomizer versions, provides one of the most structured and most easy-to-operate user interfaces among the known image editing applications. The optically attractive interface allows editing that is even a bit more intuitive, more targeted and allows to work without disturbance, while the popular 1-click optimization does all the work for you. A new zoom function and a full-screen preview for a better image analysis were also integrated.

Profiles for a faster and more effective editing

A further advantage in terms of user friendliness are the new editing profiles. These are sets of defaults that can be applied to a complete batch of photos. That will save you time, you would otherwise spend on selecting the filter or setting the desired editing strength. Just select one of the successfully applied combinations as a template and you will have a template for the future.
