You don't have to wait to go to a theme park to take an old-timey photograph with your family. Instead, you can use Cloudinary to quickly and easily create this effect on any of your current images.
We'll start with two images to work off of:
A picture of a baby with some bubbles:
An old piece of parchment:
First, we'll use the parchment image as a mask to crop the baby picture (more information here: https://cloudinary.com/cookbook/custom_shapes_cropping). Note that we're also resizing the parchment mask to match the width an height of the baby picture.
Next, we'll overlay the parchment on the entire image, making it semi transparent. This will transfer the weathered look over to the image:
Finally, we can add an effect to the end product to give it an enhanced feel (in this case, we'll apply the Sepia effect, giving the image a much more aged look):
Try using a combination of these effects to create a wide variety of styles:
Changed to grayscale to make it look like it was taken from a newspaper article:
