Film Efex: Vintage

Before After

The Vintage filter from the Film Efex series creates photos that appear to be made from the first types of color films.


Filter Settings Panel Description

Saturation: Controls the overall vibrancy of colors in your photo.
Warmth: Controls the temperature of the colors in your photo. Move the slider to the left to cool the colors (adding blues), or to the right to warm the colors (adding reds).
Vignette: Provides the ability to darken the edges of the image, in a circular shape.
Grain per pixel: Based off of the unique Nik Grain Engine, this slider lets you add realistic grain into your photo. Move the slider to the left, decreasing the number of grain elements applied per pixel, to increase the size and visibility of grain throughout your photo. To prevent any grain from being applied to your photo, move the slider completely to the right.
Film Strength: Controls the strength of the unique film stylization applied. To keep the original colors of your photo, move this slider to 0%.
Film Type: Select from a range of different film types, each designed to create a different look and feeling in your photo.
