DIY iPhone Skins

How to Turn Your iPhone Into an Awesome Vintage Camera

We love a good "how-to" around these parts, and thanks to an astute shutterbug here at Sugar HQ, we were directed to a fun and totally awesome one on Photojojo.
Since you're all submitting such amazing photos to our Cool Capture group, I can assume that our GeekSugar Community consists of photo nerds of varying degrees and you'll all be excited to test out this particular tutorial that teaches you how to make your own iPhone skin from an image of your favorite camera. Whether it's an old-fashioned Holga, your new DSLR, or your trusty hot-pink 35mm from the '80s, you can complete these step-by-step instructions with minimal sweat. You're probably using your iPhone to take more pics nowadays anyway, so why not dress it up a little?

Bonus — even if you aren't a pro in Photoshop, or don't have the time (or patience) to create your own skin, there are a few premade numbers for you to use. What's more, you can easily modify these instructions to fit your other smartphones — like a BlackBerry, Android, or other candy bar style phone — just by changing the skin dimensions. Want to get started? What are you waiting for — check out the full tutorial over at Photojojo!
