Tintype App for iOS Devices Will Hopefully Make Your Instagrams Suck Less


Ready to make that Instagram image of your chicken sandwich you had for dinner last night look like a tintype?

The other day we reported on a brand new app called Koloid–which is supposed to mimic the look of Wet Plate Collodian photos. But just recently, a similar app called Tintype has hit the iTunes store as well. Mike Newton, the creator, states that they worked with a Tintype photographer to get the images as close as possible to the real thing. He also wants to help educate people more about the process through the app. And to do that, him and his team plan on adding a national directory of tintype photographers in a future update.

The app is free with a $0.99 upgrade option. You can also visit their website for more and hit the jump for a video explaining the wet plate collodian tintype process.
