How to Create the Look of Vintage Engravings with Your Photos

Here's a quick, easy and free way to give your photos the look of old-time engraved illustrations.

Give a vintage, engraved illustration look to any of your photos. It's free and easy. Just click to learn how.

 
Have fun turning any photo or snapshot into a old-time engraved illustration at Ribbet.com.

Here's what to do:

1. Visit Ribbet.com and upload your photo.

2. Under the "Basic" menu, edit and improve your photo as needed. Crop it, sharpen it, straighten it or whatever.

3. Click on the "Effects" menu and scroll down until you find the "Pencil Drawing" effect.  Set the "Radius" to 5 and the "Strength" to 200. Click on the "Apply" button.

4. Go back to the "Basic" menu and find "Exposure". Set the "Exposure" slider to -200. Play with the "Highlights" and "Shadows" sliders until you get a look that you like. Click on the "Apply" button.

That's it. You're done! 

If you like what you see, save your image and use it as a wall art print, as a printed gift, in craft projects or as an unusual image in a blog post.

Here's an interesting effect for your photos. Use Ribbet.coms free online tools to transform any photo into an old-time tinted engraving.

Now, try a similar effect that adds soft color like an old-time tinted engraving.

1. Follow the first three steps above but add back a little of your photo's color by moving the "Pencil Sketch" slider to about 35%. Now hit the "Apply" button.

3. Go back to the "Basic" menu and find "Exposure". Play with the "Exposure","Highlights" and "Shadows" sliders until you get a look that you like. Click on the "Apply" button.

That's it.  Again, you're done and you've created a pretty, soft-color, vintage-style illustration.
