Retro and Vintage are Back in Style!

Retro and vintage style photography has become extremely popular in the past years! People love photos that look ‘old-style’ and have a vintage look, because they create a nostalgic atmosphere, awaken special feelings and memories.

What is the difference between ‘retro’ and ‘vintage’? It is generally said that retro focuses on the style of the 1910s to 1930s, while vintage recalls the time period between the 1950s and 1980s. However, some people use these terms interchangeably.

Funny.Pho.to boasts a variety of vintage and retro-inspired designs, filters, collages and frames. Want to make your photos stand out and look really different? Try aging your modern digital pictures at Funny.Pho.to.

How to add weather effects to your photos

Did you know that today is World Meteorological Day? It is celebrated each year, on March 23, by the World Meteorological Organization. Of course, this day is not a public holiday, but, whether we admit it or not, weather means a lot to us.

We always attempt to forecast the weather. And we love to talk about the weather – it is a way of breaking the ice (a way to start a conversation). People talk about the weather if they can’t think of any thing else to talk about; friends and family talk about the weather before they discuss what’s new, etc.

Did you know that you can add weather effects to your photos? E.g. if you wish to show how hard it was snowing when you took the photo, you can add an animated snow effect to your picture. Let’s see how you can do this.
