    They've gone to the same exhaustive lengths that VSCO appear to to recreate film stocks into presets. But in contrast to VSCO, most m43 cameras appear to be supported with custom profiles. That's not the case with VSCO. I'm still enjoying VSCO 4 but Replichrome looks interesting.

    Lightroom only, and I'm still sticking with Aperture...

    They list a large number of "supported cameras" but are there truly custom profiles or are they just listing RAW formats supported by the underlying ACR/LR software?

    I read somewhere else that they're truly custom profiles and not just the default Adobe profile. I'll see if I can find the link.

    Here it is Totally Rad 'Replichrome' - Serious contender to VSCO

    I hope Apple release a major Aperture update. The rumours have been doing the rounds for the past eighteen months! I think VSCO have said they won't create Aperture compatible presets until they hear more on whether Aperture has a future.

    Neither Replichrome nor VSCO are "PSE" compatible....

    They really are gunning for VSCO.


    I'm not that familiar with Totally Rad but they appear to have a fairly big user base.

    Wow this looks good, anyone know if they will keep expanding the films they include to compete with the other packs of VSCO?

    I have a couple of Totally Rad products - Dirty Pictures and Rad Lab. Their products are normally pretty expensive for what they offer but they are good.

    Their film simulations might appear cheaper than VSCO but VSCO offers 50% off for future VSCO purchases... and VSCO is expensive.

    All I can say in their defense is that I use their products a lot unlike say Topaz - who are pretty cheap but which I hardly ever use.

    A few here from yesterday's trip out. They're nearly all with Replichrome. A few with VSCO 04. Those Slide emulations of VSCO 04 really stand out, so you can probably tell which is which :smile:
