Free VSCO Lightroom presets and packs are the go to workflow tool for photographers looking to jump start their creativity, and quickly emulate a film look.
The freebies that we’ve picked out are put together to fast track a VSCO Cam aesthetic via tone curve, presence, coloring and detail adjustments during post-processing.
What is VSCO Cam? You’ve probably come across #vsco, #vscocam or a location-specific variation (something like #vsconyc) at Instagram and in short, it’s a call-back to the VSCO Cam app, which is used to take, edit and upload images. Developed by Visual Supply Company, the in-app filters and their accompanying paid desktop preset versions, imitate the look of analog film cameras via mobile or Lightroom.
Ironically, more often than not the in-depth but subtle adjustments and tweaks offered up to users of VSCO Cam can more quickly produce an IG-friendly image than IG’s own editing suite. And those near-instantaneous, pro looking, filtered results are why we decided to catalog the best free Lightroom presets that play off of “that look”.
