If you ve ever attempted to restore an old photographic print, you know it s not an easy task.

Getting rid of the unwanted tints and bringing back to life the faded colors not only requires knowledge of how the image should look, but also the skills and time to get the job done in Photoshop.

Developed by the team behind the Scanbot app, Unfade is a new iPhone app that scans old photos with your iPhone s camera and restore the vibrant colors and aesthetics of the image.

Simply lay the print down on a flat surface, open up the app, put the image in the frame, and Unfade will do the rest of the work using its Magic Color filter.

More features will be added in the near future, but no specific ideas have been mentioned by the development team.

If you don t mind reading into things though, from a teaser icon on Unfaded s website, it looks like the developers might soon add layers, manual edits, an undo feature, brushes, and even a movie mode.
