...But my biggest problem I have is that it does too much to the colors that are already saturated so I've been using it less lately.

Have you tried playing with the "HSL" settings? A lot can be done there! Each individual color is listed, and you can adjust its hue, saturation, or luminance, without affecting all the other colors.

While VSCO 2 supports the Fuji Portra films (well actually Portra NC and portra VC) but not the other emulsions in VSCO 1 list.

Still slightly confused by this statement...are you saying that you want to see the second set repeat what was in the first set? I mean, you can have both sets at one time...so why make the second set "support" what was in the first?

Sorry for not understanding if this is as clear as heck! :oops:

I suppose what is confusing by the 'VSCO 1' vs. 'VSCO 2' is the inherent implication to me that '2' is a newer update of '1', not the fact that it is a totally different product from '1'. Someone visiting the web site for the first time and coming first to this page http://visualsupply.co​/store/ (external link)
is inclined to read about VSCO 2, thinking "why would I want to read about the older version?" (i.e. why would someone read about features of Photoshop v.3 if they were relatively new to digital photography and looking for a postprocessor?!) and they would be misled into thinking that there is no support for color Fuji emulsions other than Superia.

Ahhhhhh okay. Got it :) I can see what you mean! Sorry to make you keep explaining.

Hopefully now it's a better product than you thought! :)

Once you start adjusting the HSL sliders, you start changing the "film effects." I've come to think of VSCO as "film effects" and a good starting point for creating presets.

I like to break rules...so yes, I love using VSCO for creating presets as well! Obviously, personal taste comes into play a bit too ;)

I might join the club soon, I just need a little persuading, just felt in love with what I see! Keep up the examples with before and after folks, you might convince me before you know it!

What's the difference between VSCO film and Alien Skin's Exposure app?

I'm not too familiar with Alien Skin software, but from the looks of it, VSCO is much more raw, precise, and real, and is also available for Lightroom and Aperture.

Yeah I got turned on to VSCO a little while back myself and am extremely impressed! I also am a big fan of their iphone VSCOCam app- pretty cool adjustments on there as well.

I was thinking about getting this for LR 4. For $119, not a bad price. I've been trying to get colors like this in the X-Equal presets, but those aren't as good film simulators like I thought they'd be.

Not trying to be a wet blanket, but...IMO while examples posted here are really nice digital photos, they don't really resemble film.
