Vintage Photo Revival

Vintage Photo Revival

vintage-photo-to-painting Vintage photos often change color and tend to be blurry. One way to revive a vintage photo is to turn it into an oil painting. Based on the original photo color can be added to create depth and texture.


Here you can see the added details that create the illusion of three dimensional space. Warm colors retain some of the feel of the original vintage photo and are combined with richer colors to create visual interest.
