I’ve used Vsco for a few years but recently abandoned it when they went to a monthly subscription model. I am not a RNI convert! Really love the simplicity of the app along with the editing features available. The extra film filters are great and well priced and I have already bought one of the filter packs.
Get real film look while shooting digital.
At RNI we always wanted to transfer the true character of analogue film to digital medium. So we did by digitising our library of analog slides and negatives, building their profiles and packaging those profiles into a lightweight and easy to use mobile app.
RNI Films is a great mobile companion for those who appreciate the beauty of analogue photography. And this little app enables creators to bring the artistic flair of film into their mobile workflow.
Many professional photographers find our film profiles to be more sophisticated and true to real film than rivals. That's because we work really hard to recreate every subtle aspect of real film, with great attention to general accuracy, colour separation, skin tones and grain texture.
RNI's film-simulating expertise is proven by time and appreciated by photographers from all over the globe. Our desktop and mobile solutions have been praised in a number of independent online reviews, so don't hesitate to search for RNI Films online to find out more about our products, philosophy and approach.
The RNI Films' filters are born from real film stocks and split into categories that include negative, slide, instant, black & white and vintage. The app comes with a generous introductory package of free film filters. Also additional filter packages can be added via in-app purchase.
Use RNI image adjustment tools to make sure your images perfectly meet your creative vision. You can crop and rotate, alter the brightness, contrast, and colour, enhance shadows and highlights, add vignette and real film grain, and much more.
RNI Films supports RAW. Some minor image artefacts may bee seen while editing RAW in the app's viewport which uses draft mode. But those artefacts won't be there on export. And generally the quality of the output of this little app is comparable with professional desktop software.
Share your photos to your social networks directly from the app. Supported networks include Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
The RNI Films app is simple, intuitive and straightforward to use. It’s designed with high efficiency in mind, from opening a photo to sharing the result. No clutter, no extra taps to ‘hide/unhide that panel’, no unnecessary confirmation steps – everything is streamlined and simple for your convenience.

Everything I ever wanted. I’m a purist. This works for me on many levels.
This app is an absolute blast and just gives the most incredible film style look. Very happy with the layout and aesthetics of the app, overall enjoyable to use.
Love it even I don’t have the other filter this app is really good for ig and for ur newsfeed because of the aesthetics!
Makes photos look pro!!
Firstly, I really like this app. The film emulations are great and I love the option to reduce sharpness in images. After using heavily for a few days, there are some simple features that I feel are lacking and if implemented this app could be significantly improved.
Option to decrease/darken shadows
I find it pretty silly that you can only lift shadows. This is a major flaw. You could add a curves feature, that would so the issue.
Option to increase highlights
Same here as with shadows. You should be able to increase highlights as well as decrease.
Ability to zoom in on photo
Seems like an obvious one. Often I find myself pinching to zoom to check how film stocks/settings have affected details and it doesn't let me.
Option to save/load presets
This would be a fantastic addition. I find I'm constantly having to re-set my go to settings when loading a new picture. Recalling previous settings works, until you switch between RAW and JPEG. It makes sense to implement presets so that you can easily recall settings.
I've noticed on most exports, there is a black line along the top of my images.
Thanks for making this app though! I really like it for the most part.
Firstly the film emulations are generally great. Please add the ability to save custom “recipes” of filter/edit combinations - or at the very least, favourite presets. Also, the app does crash quite frequently if your device has to load a photo from iCloud before editing. Finally, PLEASE add an emulation similar to Fuji’s “Classic Negative” in their X-series Cameras (based on Superia 100). Would be eternally grateful!
I use it for everything. It’s wonderful.
Amazing images from this wonderful app.
Been using this app to curate my feed for like 2 year and still getting compliments. 10/10 recommend
First impressions of this app was that you get a decent amount of the “vintage” film look filters for free (so app makers, please don’t change this) and honestly the filters you can pay for aren’t badly priced either. Beyond this feature tho I absolutely love the look/design of the photo editing section for brightness, contrast etc. It’s so simple and attractive looking and just feels so smooth to use right up to even the saving/sharing your edited photo. So quick and easy. I think this is my new go to photo editing app 🥰
This app really impressed me and was exactly what I was looking. Super easy to use and navigation is flawless.
I do not have the money to pay for apps (JUST SAYING! 😂) but this app is really wonderful, super well designed with extensive awesome filters/tools, and the free content is actually usable!! As well, the filters that are for purchase are pretty reasonably priced. Props to the developers for their integrity, great job!
Supports RAW format of my new camera (and also RAW preview which some of the other editors don’t seem to have). Offers well balanced controls for artistic processing and lovely film emulation.
This has made my pretty photos into quite spectacular ones, and all very simply...
it’s honestly so good for editing 🥰
So much fun and easy to use love every filter especially the vintage ones !
I don’t even bother with makeup when I just want a nice a photo for Instagram. I’m too depressed to put in any effort so this app is great for that. Thanks 💖
I’ve used many apps for editing but none come close to RNI films. 👌🏻🔥
My best friend for insta posts. Favourite part is the dust particles, I always put a custom overlay I make which I would need to do on many different apps. But this has an assortment of different ones and a lot of my editing is on the one app which is perfect. The filters are great and exactly the fit for my aesthetic and aren’t tacky vintage filters like on some other apps. Something small I also really love using which I never thought I would play around with is the pre and post warmth and tint adjustments. Really makes a difference to get exactly the colour theme I envision!
This app is the best unlike almost every other editing app you don’t have to pay money for anything I definitely recommend getting this app🤩
I love using this app, very easy to use and the filters fits perfectly for my liking. But I hope there’s an option to copy previous edits or to save custom filter to make editing more convenient.
Please don’t follow VSCO and bring everything you have to the thing called “membership”.
You now have a loyal customer!
Have been trying to find an app just like this for a while now. Very pleased to see it include the velvia which is emulated very well through the app as well as the wide range of Ilford black and white films.
What an excellent and neat app, importing RAW canon and RAW ProCam photos and loving the results. Will get the Lightroom set for sure.
I love this editing app, the filters are amazing and of a really high standard! Beautiful film like edits, highly recommend
Cool filters for film, you can even add dust effects. Cool for that vintage feel.
Love this app so much! Gives everything needed for the perfect photo!
I've been looking for a good photo editing app forever and finally found this! definitely recommend !!!
I love this app and all the filters for my photos, it is easy to use and has a pleasing, easy to follow layout. I use this app for all my photos and I get a lot of compliments. I especially love the grain filter, but there is a huge variety for whatever style you want. I highly recommend this app !!
Didn't have the money to buy 35mm cameras nor the instant cameras, but now i can express my intentions better and easier
Perfectly fits with my Insta theme!!! It’s amazing how pictures are turned into oldies. You will love it if you are film photography lover geeks !
Best filter app ever.
Adore this ap. use it for instagram posts and it adds a consistency to the pictures without trying too hard. Film stock of choice is the Kodak series.
This app is my go to app for image editing, very accurate film emulation , great tonal and grain quality, superb interface, easy to navigate, much better than any other film emulation app I've used previously, well done to RNI team
Has become one of my fave apps. But, just a few suggestions...
- a rotation option for the photo.
- ability to go back to the cropping and straightening feature etc, after applying filters etc, instead of having to restart (editing) all over again.
Love the app so much. Would love it even more if being able to create the border / frame
It's still digital photography, but RNI has made very textural filters that don't feel at all like vsco or Instagram.
This app is great. The film presets are excellent and the range in both the free and paid options are great. Now this is one of my go to apps for iphoneography
And the new film grain and dust tools top it off.
Worth a look if you like a film look.
I LOVE THIS APP!! bravo guys on creating a fantastic film simulation app. Works well, looks authentic and no issues so far. If I could recommend something it to add to this already great app it would be (NOISE) and higher ISO film. I'm not talking digital noise but something that looks authentic to the film I'm applying I want to see a difference between 100speed and 800speed. Have an option to remove the noise if ones just after the colour profile. If you could add those features it would be perfection.
Easy to use and great effects.
