All the shots that were shared here are stunners. I would share some myself but all my portraits lately have been shot on my 5DII and a crap Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-s :oops: I just ordered (today) a Canon 85mm f/1.2L :cool: so I'll be pretty excited when I finally get to try out the new stuff with VSCo.

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

Alien Skin makes plugins for Photoshop (not sure if they do for Lightroom). The biggest difference between Alien and VSCo. (and I'm not current on Alien Skin software) will be that VSCo. has custom RAW profiles for each manufacturer and each camera. Alien Skin will apply certain presets but they're generic, they won't account for your camera's model. And that's just the first part. Alien Skin does not have presets (as far as I know) to imitate -- I know the film gurus will naysay -- "the film look". I think the emphasis is on IMITATE. Anyone that comments on a photo, "that doesn't look like Portra 160" gets a big fat :rolleyes: from me. Yes, it was shot on a digital camera. Yes, you know more than me about what Portra 160 should look like....moving on...

VSCO has changed the way i edit. I hardly ever open PS anymore!

Same here, just enable Auto Sync in Lightroom and edit in groups (each scene) and first apply the adequate lens correction profile, adjust exposure, warmth/tint, and let VSCo. do the rest. I'll occasionally tweak darks and blacks (usually bring them up a little) since film tends to have a washed out look. VSCo. is *always* my starting point because I'm still not sure if the information to deal with my 5DII's RAW profile is saved when I create a new Lightroom preset. If anyone knows whether it is or not could save me some time since it would save me some time from having to manually adjust HSL settings to my liking after applying VSCo. I don't trust the Copy Develop Settings function because I don't know the RAW profile algorithms are transferred. I guess I could just do a test and take screenshots but I don't even trust that so I'll keep working harder rather than smarter ;) Of course I could just email VSCo., they have excellent tech support.

One more thing, if you happen to upgrade to Windows 8, like I did recently, make sure you install the Windows executable using Windows 7 compatibility (properties menu, second tab). I kept getting installation failure error messages before I did that and wrote VSCo. tech support and received a reply within 24 hours.

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.

Too bad you just missed their sale during November, 15% off all film packs plus a 25% "loyalty" discount if you'd purchased any of their film packs before. Lucky me, I got the whole 40%. :D

Anyone here using VSCO across 2 different cameras? I'm curious if the custom profiles account for color differences between different sensors, and adjust accordingly. For example I shot recently with a T2i and 5D, and have been struggling to match colors of similar shots between the two.

I shoot on a canon 5d mark III and i want a contax fuji 400h look but it doesnt really look right whenever I use the presets. Wondering what the standard ones are for? Obviously the canon ones are for canon shooters and nikon for nikon....also is there anything to be gained by pairing the wrong camera profile before using the preset like using a contax camera profile instead of the canon one (even though i shot on the canon). Im really wanting those creamy highlights and not to dark darks but im not the best editer and its not coming out, anyone feel the same?

I have VSCO and as your examples show, it does a great job of adjusting the curves to make flat raw files have more pop. 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.

Can't you use the preset anyway and just adjust the saturation to your liking for those already saturated RAW files and save your own preset? I am still new at this VSCO looks, but one of my photog friend is making some good $$$ flow on his wedding gigs because of these looks.

I agree. A preset may get you exactly where you wanted to go with it but other times, you still need to make some additional adjustments even after applying a preset. I have several presets that are modifications of the original vsco presets.

VSCO took me to another level! I own all 4 sets :)

Well worth their weight in gold.

I got these presets and they r awesome. I usually don't like presets because they are Pre-set and don't suit all the scenarios but these are a good set. There are YouTube vids on how to achieve this old , matte filmi look, i followed them and now was able to create my own VSCO style PP by myself. I am glad that every one are able to have these without any hard PP.

I have been working on creating my own presets - basically just to discover what all the LR controls do. I would be very interested in links to any Youtube videos on the subject that you think are good.
