BLACK — B&W Film Emulator for iPhone


BLACK is a Black & White analog film emulator for iPhone (and WP8 devices). It offers filters that were created to exactly mimic original and popular analog filters that existed back in the day.

Using the app is really easy. You can import photos from your Camera Roll to your app, choose and apply the filter or preset that you want and then export the image to the usual places. The app offers the following presets to use on your photos:

  • Greyscale
  • Kodak TRI-X 400
  • Lomography Lady Grey 400
  • FUJI Neopan 400
  • Shanghai GP3 100
  • Ilford HP5
  • AGFA APX 400
  • Tura P400
  • Paterson ACUPAN 800
  • FUJI FP-3000B
  • ORWO N15

You can also manually edit your photo using some pro tools that the app offers, such as Fade, Vignette and Curves.

BLACK is available Free on the App Store with a $0.99 IAP for manual adjustments.
