Faking Old Photos

I am not sure why after investing quite a lot of money in a nice camera, I would invest even more in software to degrade the photographs that it takes, but I have and I can produce photos that would pass for something from another era to all but the most observant.

For instance, wheelie bins weren't around in the seventies, and the dark strip of bitumen at the edge of the pavement is a giveaway as well.  The sealing of roads to the edges, and proper kerb and channel for rainwater is a very modern convenience.

But it's bin day, and that's probably all that matters.

I only use free software for that sort of thing. Here is one that you could try.

Why do the 1970s look cream, green and orange? I don't remember it being so dull when I lived in it.
