First Look at The Alchemy Collection from VSCO

On April 7th, VSCO is releasing a new photo preset series, The Alchemy Collection which features 10 photo editing settings. I was asked to test-drive and play with the set, and had a blast comparing, picking and choosing.

VSCO describes The Alchemy Collection as the ideal pack “for lifestyle photography, stylized portraiture, and strong statement images,” and I have to agree: the presets are bold and beautiful. My personal favourites are Q1, Q3 (numero uno!), Q5 and Q8, but they’re all so unique and different—not only from each other—but from any other filter pack. So without further ado, here’s some shots I’ve taken over the past while, all edited with each of the Alchemy presets. The before shots are raw and unedited and the afters use the described preset.
