Flashback to Present

Hi everyone. So, I made a flashback in my story and want to take the readers back to present time, however, I’m finding it sort of difficult to transition in a way that feels natural. Any suggestions?

Hey ! I use flashbacks too, and what I usually do is :

  • Use filters to differentiate flashbacks from present ; I slightly alter the colours in the past, so when I go back to present, the colours go back to normal.
  • Add an overlay that says “5 years ago” or “Present time” at the beginning of the scene
  • A white fade out/fade in transition when I’m done with the past and want to go back to present

Not sure if it helps, but that’s how I do it (:

This helps so much, thank you!
