Brings Out That Nostalgic Feel

Calm and Nostalgic. Just like in vintage photos, the Old Cinema preset mutes yellow tones and increases shadows. In the After photo, notice how the harsh light on the woman's face is dimmed and diluted.

With the preset's lighting adjustments, and added grain, the overall look of the photo has a softer texture that portrays a calmer subdued look without compromising the life out of the image.

Accentuates Orange Tones

Striking and Vivid. This preset gives an instant pop of color especially emphasizing on orange and yellow tones. With added exposure and luminance, the image leaves you with a vintage look that can instantly filter simple shots to make your photos look coherent and crisp.

Notice how the After photo transformed through this preset. It instantly brought out the old cinema feel, as the colors of the building walls suddenly shaped the image and added emphasis on the overall color and tone.

Gives Outdoor Photos Brilliance

Inner glow. As seen in the Before and After images, the Old Cinema preset adds a glistening look on this outdoor photo. Notice the lighting accent on the After image, this suddenly changes the focal point of the whole photo - bringing texture to woman's hair and fields, leaving you with a more distinct and defined look.

This preset is perfect for portrait photos with a lot of natural light giving your subjects that ethereal inner glow.

Cultivates Bold and Rich Tones

Bold and Uplifting. The photo above demonstrates how increasing aqua and blue saturation can instantly uplift the tone and mood of your images. This is especially seen in the sky with the striking blue tones that give this shot a much more bold character.

This preset mutes and highlights the right places, as seen on the trees in the background, the green is slightly muted and complements the focus on the car's color making the overall image seem like the photo is taken using analog photography.

Adds Texture and Depth

Defining Elements. There are many elements in this photo that the Old Cinema preset defines. In the After photo, the man's skin color changes instantly to a warmer tone creating emphasis on his hands holding the camera. You can also see the smoke from the pipe subtly comes out as an added texture and depth.

This preset can easily transform your outdoor photos to a more lively contoured look through the right light and shadows that create a defined and distinct texture.
