Tintype is celebrated and receives a digital makeover with a new app for iPhone: Tintype. The app allows user to capture photos in the style the process gives to photosThe user will also be able control depth of field, change the texture of the photo and add old-timey borders and oystering. And of course, all photos can be uploaded to Instagram and Facebook.

This isn’t just another hipster photographic filter app but a celebration also of the process. The app actually was made in collaboration with Jen Jansen, who is a tintype photographer. The app will also present the process’ history, how a real one is made and will have a constantly updated list of photographers.

For more information about the app or to download it, head over to iTunes app store: itunes.apple.com
