Vignette for Android: Examples of all Effects

HansPhotography4 Comments

We don’t have Hipstamatic or Instagram on Android yet, unfortunately. But we do have an app called Vignette (both free and paid), and I love it! With Vignette, you can apply a combination of analog film effects to your mobile snapshots. It’s a lot of fun, but choosing the right effect can be difficult since the app doesn’t really provide examples of the available effects.

So, here you go, my post with examples of all Vignette effects. They were applied to the original image as shown below:

    Yes, thanks a lot! I am surprised that the software owner has not done this. But luckily you did, thank you.
