How to Turn an Old Flatbed Scanner Into a Scanner Camera For Vintage Results

How to Make Vintage-Looking Photos With a Scanner

It's like the better our cameras get, the bigger our urge to make pictures look old and vintage-y.

First there was Poladroid to make your photos look like now-defunct Polaroids, and now I've found a tutorial from Make that teaches you to turn an old flatbed scanner into a scanner camera that produces noir-ish black and whites, like in this dog picture.

Are you into making your photos look rad and old? What's the fascination, do you think?

YEah he looks like he melted through the floor. And the picture doesn't look vintage, it looks like it was printed with low ink.
