Retropress includes these useful actions:

  • Ink Viscosity - Ink soaks into paper and spreads based on how thick it is. That's called viscosity and it's essential to getting a realistic print effect. Retropress gives you three viscosity actions (light, medium, and heavy.
  • Roughness - Look at a printed newspaper or magazine from circa 1950 really close (go ahead, I'll wait). You'll see the edges of the ink aren't smooth but have a slightly rough edge. This subtle touch if often missed when designer try to create a retro print effect. Retropress includes 3 roughness settings.
  • Ink Texture - When ink soaks into paper it flows over the small paper fibers and pools in between. This creates a subtle texture. With Retropress you get an easy to use action that let's you adjust the intensity as you see fit.
  • Halftone - Back in the day you'd find halftone printing everywhere (images created from small dots). RetroPress gives you an authentic halftone effect in black ink and color. 
  • Tutorial Video - I've included a tutorial video that shows you how to install and use the actions. These actions are super easy to use but I thought it might be useful to see them in action (no pun intended).
