Adobe Photoshop


A graphic designer has created a free Photoshop action that'll turn digital snaps into holga-style images.

Grey Jay started using the Holgarizer on his own digital images and friends started asking: "What camera are you using? What film are you shooting?" So he began sharing the action with friends then after a revamp, decided to make the action available to the public.

It's useful for those who want to quickly emulate this look on images they've taken on digital cameras rather than on iPhones and Android devices where apps such as 'Instagram' are available that create similar effects.

The action, which is compatible with Photoshop CS2 – CS5, is available on Grey's Equal & Opposite blog.
