    I've been experimenting with VSCO Film lately and liking the results so far. Curious if there's other users here? If so, what are your favorite presets? I have Packs 1-6 and there's a LOT to pick through so I'm working on finding some favorites. So far I've been working with Pack 1 (Modern films) and 4 (Slide films).

    Some I like so far:
    Fuji 160-C (Pack 1) all around
    Kodak E-200 (Pack 4) all around
    Fuji Astia&Velvia (Pack 4) dramatic landscapes
    Afga Vista 400 Night/Tungsten (Pack 5) streets at night

    Pack 3 (instant film) seems pretty useless as most are too overbearing. Pack 6 (Cross Process/Push Pull) is a mystery to me as I don't know what sorts of images usually work with those techniques.

    Let me know what I should be trying out! Also I'd love to hear a favorite monochrome preset as I haven't dug through them much yet.

    Share some photos processed with VSCO as well, when I have time later I will upload some of my own.

    I would like to use some VSCO sets. However, I only have PS CS4. I cannot seem to find if any of the current sets are compatible with it, or if there is a way to acquire older sets that would be compatible.

    In the mean time I have to settle with VSCO Cam on the iPad. I have a modified some settings on preset 01 to give me a boosted contrasty B&W that I like to use.



    Although, now that I have Tonality on the iMac, I am using it more.

    Great images and well processed. Also cool to see the instant film presets put to a very appropriate use. I got all 6 packs at a "discount" so while I probably wouldn't go out of my way for certain packs since I have them it's nice to see potential uses.

    Thank you......I do only use them as a starting point and make changes from there.

    Seems very interresting... I have only the 0 pack (the free one).
    I looked at the prices for the other packs, I was kind of shocked...
