Old Photo PRO is a simple app which concentrates on performing one basic task - in this case ageing your images so they look like old photos - rather than trying to do too much. You simply open or shoot a picture, load it into the app and it automatically gives you a sepia toned, crinkly edged version of it. If you want to alter it you just press the Edit button and you can choose between Sepia or Cyanotype filters, with sliders to adjust Brightness, Contrast, Tone and Colour Intensity so you can get the effect you want. There's also a button allowing you to customise the paper texture and edges, including even a folded effect if you want it to look like it's been in your wallet for 50 years. The basic version is free but you're limited to low-res 640x480pixel output and you get annoying ads. Paying the £1.99 loses the ads and lets you output the full high-resolution file. There are many other image-processing apps that incorporate similar effects, but this one is quick and easy andit's worth a look. You can at least try the free one first.
