How To Age Your Photos Instantly Without Photoshop

Many photographers rely on Adobe Photoshop to do some of the most simple of tasks. Photoshop is a very powerful piece of software which is capable of doing many different things. Aging a photo using Photoshop is actually pretty simple, but there are times when you might not have Photoshop available on your computer.

There are a few tools which can be used on the Internet to instantly age your photographs. The advantage of these websites is that you can quickly and easily age photos without any specialist tools. One of the easiest tools to use can be found at: http://labs.wanokoto.jp/olds.

Although this site is in Japanese, the process is very easy to understand and follow. Nobody should have any problem aging their photos by using this tool instead of Photoshop.

Step 1: Opening the Site

The first thing that you should do is open your web browser and visit the http://labs.wanokoto.jp/olds site. This will load the photo editing website, which can then be used to make the photographs look much older than they did before.

Google Translate can always be used to translate the website if needed. If you open the site in Google Chrome, then you will automatically be given the option to translate the site into English.

Step 2: Uploading

Click the "Choose File" button, which is conveniently in English. This is centered in the middle of the page and is easy to find. Once you have chosen the file, you should click the big blue button under the choose file button. This will upload the image to the website. Depending on the size of the photo, this might take a very long time to complete.

Instead of uploading the photograph, you can click the "URL" tab at the top of the page. Selecting this option makes it possible to put the URL of the image into the website. By doing this, it's much easier to convert your photographs without needing to upload them.

As soon as the photo is uploaded, it will automatically be adjusted to look old. There aren't any adjustments that you can make to this tool, however, it is still very useful.

Step 3: Downloading the Photo

Next, you need to download the file to your computer. To do this, click on the last tab which says "Download" if you have translated the site. This will present you with a single link allowing you to download the photo to your computer. Simply click the link and then choose where to save it on your computer.

The photo can also be shared in an album on the site by inputting a few details on the first tab. The photo can also be shared using Twitter to increase the number of people who will see it.

Photoshop is useful and you will probably never eliminate the need for it. Tools like these, however, do make it really simple to do a number of projects without needing to learn how to master Photoshop.
