VSCO Film 06 Review – Before and After Images

VSCO Film 06 Review

VSCO released their latest film emulation plugins for Lightroom and ACR today, The Alternative Process Collection. These are very interesting for us as many of our favorite film images are from Portra 160 pushed a stop. These plugins should be very versatile for photographers shooting weddings, editorial, or personal work. This is definitely a popular aesthetic and VSCO seems to have more refined presets with each release.

Roll-over the images to see the before & after.

    Love it – its great that you put the before shots up as well, the new pack looks really usable!

  3. Looks good. Curious though, not a big VSCO user but didn’t they already do Portra in VSCO 1&2?

    2. Oh right, I see. Hence the alt process theme. 😛

  4. Just purchased 06! LOVE IT!

  5. Beautiful, makes me want to purchase this as well.

  6. Wonderful pictures, the new pack looks really beautiful

  7. Great review! Do you guys use Nikon or Canon? My results are so different from yours (I use Canon), and another review I just saw from a Canon user looks more like what I’m getting results wise. I’m wondering if it might have something to do with the profiles for NIkon just looking a little different, or if you shoot Canon, maybe you use the Standard profiles or something?

    Thanks for taking the time to post this!

      We shoot Canon! There are quite a few variables.. body/lens/light/etc

  8. Hi! Love the look of these 🙂 And thanks for the review! I love your before and after comparisons for the VSCO presets – thanks for doing them again and again! For this set, I can’t get the before and afters to work (the roll-over) to work.

    1. sarakbyrne says:

    2. I Still don’t see any rollover. would love to see the before/after on all of your reviews!!!!

  9. These photos are beautiful but for some reason I can see the before images! Do I need to be in a certain browser??
