Blogging from A to Z Challenge: T is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2022 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, T is for Tintype.

Tintype is a very simple app.  Coming from Hipstamatic, Tintype’s one job is to make your photos look old.  There are four “colour” options:  BW, two kinds of sepia (Tintype does not give them names), and colour.  You can crop to square from rectangle (but you can’t decide how it crops), you can adjust the plate grain and add a frame (type decided for you), can emphasize eyes when working with portraits, and adjust the depth of field.  That’s it.  No sliders or anything else to do.

Here are some websites to check out

And here are some examples:

Sepia 2 + lowered grain no frame

  1. Just amazing what the programs/apps can do.


  2. It is cool how each setting that you can choose for a photo makes the photo look so totally different! Neat app!
