Alright, it’s the selfie, the Instagram post, the Twitter upload, or a photo on the Facebook wall. But next to those are photo effects, and one of the more popular is an odd one. It’s called grunge; which is also used to take a basic photo and give it that antique, distressed look. Here’s how.
From Perfect To Grungy
Today’s cameras, whether point and shoot, smartphone, or DSLR, are almost magical in their ability to create a quality photo, complete with proper focus and exposure.
So, why would a photographer want to take a decent photo and turn it into a photo as distressed as a hungry zombie?
Thanks to Night of the Living Dead, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, The Walking Dead and a host of TV shows and movies of similar ilk, the grunge look is here to stay.
That’s what Grungetastic does to your photos. Grunge. Zombied.
If Tim Burton, John Carpenter, and Quentin Tarantino collaborated on a Mac photo app, it would be Grungetastic.
See? Grungy. You just know there’s a zombie or two in that shed, right?
Grungetastic features multiple grungy looking styles, each of which is self described and variations on the same theme. There’s Grunge, Bleached Grunge, Pop Grunge, Worn Pop Grunge, Worn Grunge, Gritty Grunge, and Distressed.
Simple photos can become artistic masterpieces (if you like grunge).
As a photo enhancement app, Grungetastic is simple to setup and use. Add a photo and selected the grunge style you want to apply. Enhancements are applied almost instantly.
Grungetastic is not expensive and you can buy it on the Mac App Store, but there are less expensive versions for iPhone and iPad.
