The Lomo-Effect on photographs is used frequently to provide an old photograph feel or simply a colour manipulation. I have made this into a written tutorial from this video tutorial from tutvid! If you are in a rush I have made an actions file that you can download and add in Photoshop easily! If you are using GIMP then checkout this tutorial.

I’m a graphic design student with a decent photography background. New equipment tends to be very expensive for me, so this is a great way to experiment with my photos without having to purchase a new piece of equipment.

Just wanted to say thank you. I used it today on a photograph, and its amazing. So simple yet so effective. :)
