You might be familiar with the VSCO mobile app where users can take, upload, edit, and share photos with their followers. It shares a lot of features with Instagram, but has a few key differences that have made it very popular in the last few years. The biggest draw to VSCO is its library of image filters that give new life to otherwise plain iPhone photos.
VSCO wasn’t always about just a mobile app. They had their roots as a plugin provider for various photo editing tools like Adobe Lightroom. Their plugins mimic the characteristics of film to alter the color profiles and levels of your photos. Think of it as a professional Instagram filter.
Below is a picture of mine that I edited with various VSCO filters in Lightroom CC to show how it changes the image.

As you can see, by changing the VSCO preset you completely change the feeling of the photo. In my workflow I usually stick to one preset for a batch of images and tweak the settings accordingly after applying the preset.
The cool thing about these filters is that they simulate the color profiles of real film. It’s no replacement for shooting film (something I’ve discussed here) but if you want to give your images some new character, VSCO for Lightroom is a great way to do it.

I enjoy cars, photography, sneakers, fashion, music, fitness, and successful people. Sometimes I write about those things too.
