faux vintage

I've been really jealous of Sarah and her old-timey camera (this one or something similar), so I decided how to learn how to make digital pictures look old. Turns out it's pretty easy. Assuming you have Photoshop, that is. You can mess around with the filters, softening the image and changing the hue/saturation OR you can download an action file, which I didn't know existed until yesterday. Someone else does all the work; all you have to do is press "Play." Then you can add layers of actual lenses- people take pictures of their dirty lenses so you can use them in Photoshop. Pretty rad.
