Replichrome

Totally Rad! recently released Replichrome, which is a collection of 134 film-look presets for Lightroom users that are targeted directly at fans of the popular VSCO presets. Totally Rad! set out to create a product that was clearly better than VSCO in nearly every important way:  more films, better accuracy, and a…

Come on guys. This is a bit too much of a sales pitch. Why didn't you rather just post their press release without pretending this was a review. I'm not defending VSCO here, which I don't use because I'm not after 100% accuracy in film simulation – I just want a good image. But this kind of "product comparison" is totally not useful to the reader. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback Dirk.

I didn't categorize or title this as a review because it's not a review. It's also not a product comparison since I haven't used VSCO. I did, however, include my impressions from using the presets since I have used them. I like it and said as much. Sorry if that sounds like a sales pitch to you.

I could have just copied and pasted in their press release; however, I included my opinion since I had one to give. I also noted that I haven't used VSCO (even though it seems quite popular in the LR plugin circles) and that Totally Rad! was aiming to compete directly with VSCO.

The advantages/differences bullet point list comes Totally Rad!, which is why I said the points were "highlighted" by them. I think that's a relevant list for people who are users of VSCO or have been looking to purchase those presets.

When I really like a product, I'll be posting my opinion of it. When I hate a product, that'll show up here as well.

You should check out rebelsauce's presets. They're a lot less technical and more good old film presets. They have a beautiful edge to their presets. So far they're getting a huge fan following as well. The company's only been around for 6 months and so far its huge.

Here's the link: rebelsauce.co
