VSCO no longer offers these presets for desktop use. I now use my presets through DVLOP.
I get a lot of emails about how I get my digital images to look the way they do. The truth is that most of it is done in camera, properly exposed images shot in good light is what makes a good image, not the processing. With that said though, I do edit my images. Ever since VSCO film was released in 2011, I have used their presets for all my editing, I rarely even open photoshop these days.
VSCO Film 1,2 and 3 are presets for Lightroom and Photoshop. The three packs have a number of presets made to mimic different film stocks. I use all three packs, which presets I use generally depends on my own mood, i have used and use pretty much all of the presets, but I rarely use more than one colour and one black and white preset per wedding or shoot.
Pack 1 has the most classic looks, pack 2 have a few more dramatic looks and pack 3 are presets made to look like instant film (polaroid).
Not only has VSCO helped me speed up my processing immensly, it has made me happy with my processing. I generally don’t have to tweak my images at all after I’ve applied the different presets and for someone who shoots as much as i do, that’s amazing.
I also use another product from VSCO called VSCO Keys. VSCO Film cut my editing time in half, when I started using VSCO Keys, my editing time was cut in half again. In short VSCO Keys are keyboard shortcuts for Lightroom and using it has helped me speed things up dramatically.
My favourite presets are Fuji 400, Fuji 800Z, T-Max 3200 ++, Ilford Delta 3200 ++, Superia 100 and Portra 400 NC ++. I use the presets in pack 3 for flavour and mainly on individual shots.
You can buy all film packs and VSCO Keys here.
