VSCO launched new tools for its photo/video editing app on Tuesday, with a new preset and options to edit videos with speed and reverse.
Something I like about VSCO is its curation of photos from its community of users. There are categories like summer, monochrome, abstract, and more. Its latest initiative is #BlackJoyMatters, a summon-long series to share photos from Black creatives.
We are kicking off #BlackJoyMatters with a global call to action, urging online communities to create, capture and share their interpretations of Black Joy to social media through posting art, first-person videos and/or photos across every social platform using the hashtag #BlackJoyMatters. Throughout the summer, we will spotlight the submitted imagery and art across our social channels and within the VSCO app.
Andrew has been using VSCO since 2017. As a social media app, VSCO doesn’t have ads, follower counts, or comments from strangers.
VSCO announced a new feature Wednesday called Montage. It’s a tool that lets users create multimedia videos.
VSCO X is a membership program for the photography app VSCO. It’s a yearly subscription that offers members exclusive film emulation presets.
Based on Fuji’s discontinued T64 film, FT6 gives photos cool tones perfect for dim city nights and soft, overcast days. It’s a good way to offset the orange and yellow tones commonly found with tungsten light, like from street lamps. But you don’t need that kind of light to edit with FT6. It works great for coastal fog, snowy days, or turning daytime scenes into nighttime scenes with the following recipe: FT6, Exposure (-6.0), and Contrast (+2.0).

After I published my list of VSCO presets I thought I’d send it to the folks at the company. As it turns out they had something to share with me too. As part of the VSCO X membership (US$19.99/year), users can how publish their videos to the feed, which was previously limited to photos.
We know this is something our community has been asking for and we can’t wait to see how you bring your stories to life with the new tools we’re making available for our members. We’ve rounded up some tips for how to take advantage of the new video features with your VSCO membership.
Over the past two years Andrew has collected information on every VSCO classic preset and the kind of photography each one works best with.
VSCO recently acquired Rylo, a company founded by two former Apple engineers who worked on iPhoto for iOS.
VSCO is my favorite photo editor and TechCrunch’s Kate Clark sat down with CEO Joel Flory to talk about his company.
Without selling ads or customer data, VSCO has developed a sustainable subscription-based business and written a new playbook for social media businesses in a world where Facebook’s advertising-based model is king. For those fed up with platforms that have facilitated bullying and failed to prioritize privacy, VSCO may be a protective corner of the internet.
I have a couple more VSCO articles planned for the future, like a review of the editing tools.
Photo app VSCO has redesigned its feed so that images are bigger. You’ll see single images at a time, instead of the old style where each image was smaller and alternated.
We believe this redesign will help you explore your VSCO feed in a new way, allowing the subtleties of each image to be front and center as you scroll. At VSCO, creative expression often starts with inspiration and sometimes that requires taking the time to appreciate the details as much as the complete work itself.
I think it’s an improvement and I’m glad to see it.
Today VSCO announced the launch of a VSCO Snapchat lens called Analog, giving people a chance to unleash their creativity. Here’s how to use it.
The newest film preset for VSCO X members is based on the Kodak Ektachrome E100VS film, and the preset is called KA3.
It’s been a long time since VSCO released new Film X presets, but we have two that were just released: Kodak Portra 400VC (KP6) and Kodak Portra 400UC (KP).
The story I’m linking to is a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at the effort VSCO puts into emulating analog film. The company releases these special presets as part of its VSCO X membership, which costs US$20/year.
Its Film X filters recreate the look of long-gone analog films like Ektar 100, Portra 400, and Kodak Tri-X (a favorite of the late street photographer Garry Winogrand). It’s a long process that involves not just coding, but locating old film stock and reverse engineering the pictures captured on it.
It’s interesting to read, but I’d also like to take this opportunity to say that I’m a VSCO X member and VSCO hasn’t released a Film X preset since January. We were promised one new preset every month. Time to cancel?
VSCO is launching a feature called For This Photo that uses machine learning to automatically suggest presets for your photos.
Bryan Chaffin is joined by Andrew Orr to talk about social media and photography. They also talk about where AR can go and what the killer app of this emerging technology could be. Still donning their futurist hats, they look at what iPhone might in 10, 20, and even 50 years.

Now available exclusively for VSCO members, Kodak Portra 400NC was originally released in 1998 and became a favorite amongst portrait and fashion photographers. With its natural tones and low contrast, KP5 allows the styles that surround you to stand out.
