Photoshop CS Tip: Holga Simulator

Anyone into pop-culture kitsch would have heard about this bloated Lomography fad (my thoughts here), and the legendary Holga toy camera. If you’d rather not bother yourself fiddling with film – moreso, 120 rollfilm (not your ordinary 35mm) – but a curiosity did spark, you can download this Photoshop ‘actlet’ available at Adobe Studio Exchange (FREE registration required).

The actlet author mentions that this is best used by utilizing a digital camera with at least 4 megapixels, and images sized at 2300 x 1700. By default, it converts color photos to black-and-white, but there are dialog boxes to guide you on what to do in case you’d like to keep the image colored, or to lessen blur effects.
