Make Your Pictures Retro With Retromatic 2.0

Retromatic 2.0 LogoIf you enjoy retro style graphics and images, you will definitely enjoy the Retromatic 2.0 app. It is a nice tool for turning your photos into retro posters and pictures with a combination of filters and effects. From the makers of the Path On app, the app allows you to choose to edit existing images from your device or take a photo with the built-in camera from within the app. Once you have an image, the first step in editing it is to highlight the portion of the photo that you want to include in the resulting graphic by tracing over it with your finger. Because you can zoom in on the image, it is easy to select a small portion of the photo or a larger segment. After you have finalized your selection, you can move on to the next step which puts the selected section of the image on your choice of more than 15 backgrounds that are included with the app. Each of these backgrounds is available in multiple colors resulting in a wide range of customization options. The next step in the process is selecting the effects you would like to apply to the segment you selected from your original photo. Similar to Instagram filters, these effects can help to integrate your photo with the background and age it to help achieve the overall retro look. The app also offers the option to add stickers or text to your photos, which means that the resulting graphic can be completely customized, for example to look like an advertisement or poster. Finalized graphics can be saved to your device, imported directly into Path On for further editing, or shared directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, or your email. Whether you design graphics for fun or for work, Retromatic 2.0 is a good option for creating retro looks from your own photos.
