VSCO Slide film emulations

According to the website, VSCO’s fourth pack is dedicated to “current and discontinued slide film emulations that produce rich and vivid tones” – it does not disappoint. The pictures in my last post were all processed in Lightroom using this latest VSCO film pack.

In the past, I’ve posted several examples of different VSCO film emulation possibilities. I’ve decided to do something similar this time. There are 11 different film types with several variations of each, for a total of over a hundred different presets.  I’ve included less than 20 examples here (generally one variation of each film type). As with previous posts, all I did was apply the preset – no customization to speak of.

The only exception is for Fuji Velvia 100 – I’ve included seven of its ten variations below.

I wanted to show the impact on as many different colors as possible, so the image I chose was of some graffiti in Wynwood, Miami. This is the original shot… *one that might look familiar to some of you.

Most of the VSCO 4 pack is color, but there is a B&W film preset with nine different variations. Here is one of them.

You might not be surprised to hear that my favorite presets are the Fuji films… but I’ll save the best for last. There are three sets of Kodak presets that aren’t bad though.

Kicking off the Fuji examples, is one of the Provia presets. (*) I posted a customized version from a similar variation recently. There are a total of 13 variations of the Fuji Provia 400X preset.

And finally, here are a few variations of the Fuji Velvia 100 presets. Sometime soon, I will compare these VSCO variations with the out of camera JPEGs using its Velvia film simulation.
