With this week’s blog post, we will be looking at the how-to guide to make your cityscape have the 70s and 80’s inspired retro look. We will be using the Urban Jungle Photo Editor to make your cityscape look retro.
Let us start by selecting a template for our retro-inspired piece. I like this dark empty street.
Let us also add a frog from the object menu to give our piece a magical feel.
The first step is to go into the filters menu by selecting ‘filter’ from the tiles at the bottom of the screen. This will open up the filter’s menu. We’ll notice this menu has both pre-made filters and custom tools to mix and match our liking. Select the RBG Split tool and slide it towards the far right. You can adjust the RGB splitting effect to your liking as well.
Now let us add a little edge blur to our cityscape. We can do that by selecting the edge blur tool and sliding it to the right, till we have the perfect amount of blurry effect on the edges of the frame.
To finish it off, let us add some grainy texture to our piece. Select the grain filter from the menu and add a slide it a little towards the right to add the grain effect to the image.
Our retro frog on the street piece is now ready to be posted on Instagram!
