The Hipstamatic app gives your photos a retro look. With multiple lenses, films, and flashes to choose from, you can achieve various effects like over-saturation, color tinting, and vignetting. It's a little unpredictable, but in a really fun way, and I love seeing how each of the images turn out!

There are some really great resources online if you have the Hipstamatic app on your iPhone. Shimelle did a post all about using her Hipstamatic and how to print and scrap with the photos. Super helpful! And Photojojo created the Ultimate Hipstamatic Guide so you can preview every possible combination of lens, film and flash available in the app.
And of course, not everyone wants or has an iPhone. If you want the look but can't download the app, my super-talented blog friend Lara created step-by-step instructions on how to use Photoshop to turn your normal photos into hipsta prints. Thank you dear Lara!!
I'm dreaming up ideas on how to scrap my Chicago pics. My initial plan to use photos from our traditional camera has fallen wayside now that I've fallen hard for the Hipstamatic app. What do you think of this style of photo? Do you ever apply retro effects to your images?
