Except within « Creative Corner », on Anachromic Website, there is no pictures editing and treatement to deliver a vintage effect. Such effect are created on computers to increase the « noise » or to create an « halo » effect at picture edge.
In the past, some pictures can have such « Halo » effect, because camera lens didn’t provide a homogenous light restitution on the film. Picture A
An other type of « halo » could came from issues during paper impression, (lake of homogenous light) or due to silver halide or UV aging effect. Picture B
