Hi,
img_5666.jpg



I am posting this in Photoshop and Illustrator section of VC forums because I thought this was the closed related topic for this issue
I found this image and I pretty sure that this was made using a mobile app or a desktop app which has a preset or something. I have tried posting this in some forums before and haven't got any satisfactory answers YET.
So I hope that you dudes at VC Forums can come out a way to recreate this image and give me a guide as to HOW I can do this, or what Android/iOS/Windows Phone app or desktop application can help me achieve this. I am posting in this section because it is related to image editing/graphics/typography.

I think you can see some tutorials on vintage creation. Actually I didn't see any specific way for making it. But you can copy them in your design. I mean, you see some of them are too light and some of them are dark. Actually after getting a type font then you can make it with your creativity.

Best of luck.

I would use the font, then create a matte with block type noise with fractal noise and use that to determine the opacity of the letters as a whole.

Check out the attached file as a draft.

Hmm, makes sense!
Thanks!

Thanks for the font! That will help, yes.
But how do I make the tiny darke spots in some characters? Do I do it manually?

Why not just by a $12 vintage typewriter from Salvation Army and ink up the ribbon? Its can be a timewasting trap to try to imitate analog effects that can be achieved somewhat easily in other ways. I know because I have spent plenty of time doing things like this myself :)
