Faded offers the controls you need
Apply an emulsifier effect

Apply an emulsifier effect. One of the hidden gems of traditional film development happens when some of the emulsifier gets left behind and leaves a unique appearance to the photograph. Faded allows you to replicate that with your digital photography.

Plenty of other filters and effects. Faded doesn't stop at the emulsifier effect. You can set specific light leaks, film grain, and much more.

Creating your first Faded photo

What is it about?

When you want to create a vintage look for your photograph, you want the process to be as easy as possible. Faded provides that ease of use, giving you a step-by-step path to achieving the look you want.

For those who...

  • want to create a retro or vintage look to their photography
  • love applying special darkroom and photography effects to their images

Not for those who...

  • don't take pictures
  • prefer the modern, digital look of photographs

Why we love it

What really makes Faded stand out is the immense library of filters and effects you can use. There are film presets, emulsifier effects, and light leaks, to name just a few. The app is also incredibly easy to use. Some apps might cram all of those effects into an ugly interface, but not Faded. The user interface is gorgeous and well-organized, putting all of the controls right where you need them. Speaking of controls, Faded doesn't stop at filters and preconfigured presets. You can also take control of the settings of your photograph, including brightness, contrast, exposure, white balance, and more.

Professional photographers can’t live without it. Amateurs can’t believe how easy it is to look like a pro. Just check out #madewithfaded on Instagram for proof.

No matter what your skill level is, you’ll love Faded’s gorgeous, film-inspired looks, and the powerful editing tools will help you take your creativity to the next level.

Choose from 102 beautiful free filters. Faded’s custom filters bring the nostalgia and beauty of classic film to your photos. You can preview each one in large grid format.

Signup for Faded Pro and receive a new gorgeous filter every day!

Group your own edits and adjustments and save them as filters. You can later apply these custom filters—which professional photographers call “actions”—to any photo. You can even apply your custom actions to multiple photos at once and do a “batch” export.

Experiment with color-bursting gradients, light leaks, emulsions, and unique frames to give your photos a one-of-a-kind look. When you want to give your photos more depth and complexity, check out the premium effects.

Maintain complete control of your images. Must-have tools such as manual exposure, hands-free snap shutter countdown, compositional grid or square format, split exposure, focus points, and burst mode ensure that you’ll be ready when the perfect shot presents itself.

Customize your photos with 12 professional, custom adjustments, including fade, highlights, sharpen, exposure, shadows, grain, and others.

Layer an image, solid color, or pattern over your original photo. You can then adjust the opacity, filter, and blending to create truly remarkable pics.

Access your complete adjustment history. Faded’s non-destructive editing enables you to revert back to any point in the editing process and save your adjustments as custom actions.

Perfect your images faster with the help of the app’s clean, intuitive navigation.

Choose from 3 export resolutions and upload your photos directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Dropbox, Evernote, and email. You can also simply save to your camera roll in high resolution.
