    ooh I like that idea! Do "recreations of an unspecified type of film look" images count as well? I don't really have any software mimicking any specific film, apart from the X100's jpeg engine ;) but I do have a set of "portraesque" colour curves that I often adjust to what I feel the photo needs.

    [edit]
    here's one photo where I think the Portraesque curves worked particularly well (must be the Ricoh PX's incredibly low contrast default jpegs that allow the curves to look very natural!)

    ... and an image where I feel Fuji's Astia emulation really shows off its suitability to portraits

    Not a specific film type but an attempt at replicating vintage film.

    Infrared Ektachrome,

    17112725155_c0b5fbb426_o. I1016058 by fiftyonepointsix, on Flickr

    Leica M8 with an Orange filter. This leaves the Blue channel sensitive to Infrared, Green and Red channels get visible light. The color bands are rotated to that Red channel shows up as Blue color, Blue shows up as Red. This is similar to the way IR Ektachrome worked. The color is closer to the old E-3 process Infrared Ektachrome that I used a long time ago.

    With the RED filter, Blue and Green get Infrared, Red sensitive to visible, Red/Blue channels interchanged.

    I really miss the old Kodak emulsions, especially the look of aged slides so I've cooked up a number of my own chrome masalas to taste.

    My new home in NicoChrome (I live on the left, about 70m from where the beach ends).

    Met this guy while trying my best to hold myself stable at the back of a motorcycle on Ticao Island, Philippines. As the subject is kinda timeless (and the quality of the picture was less than optimal) I thought a vintage look could be cool.

    16616758304_b688679a75_b. M9_LinearDNG_to_PLUSX by fiftyonepointsix, on Flickr

    Leica M9 with 28/2.8 Elmarit, Yellow filter on lens, converted to Linear-DNG Monochrome using custom software, Silver Efex 2 for Plus-X emulation.

    Even has dust spots on the sensor to emulate "water Spots" on the "negative"... I cleaned the sensor after this...

    The original digital negative of this image was taken with my Ricoh GR; post-processed in Lightroom.....but then I used one of the nifty plugins/presets from X-Equals, which emulates the characteristics of Fuji Velvia - which in this case seemed just right for this image, giving it a little more intensity, contrast, and those saturated colors that Velvia users still prize -

    This is a Kodak Gold 100+++ from the free VSCO film pack that's currently available.

    Two more - the first a monochrome/black & white conversion - using the X-Equal's Fuji Acros preset/plugin for Lightroom - the original negative was relatively flat, but Acros's high-contrast look gives it some 'drama' -

    And an Ektar emulation preset (also from Xel) on this shot of the old crabapple tree outside my house, coming into its spring blossoms. Played around with this one for awhile, but something about the Ektar tones here was just right for this image -

    I used a Polaroid cool PX from VSCO for this one, plus some fiddling about and then some Nik filters.

    DSC08055-Edit.

    I might do a few more from this series like this just because it's so difficult to the get the white balance to match in each, the LR dropper still makes the whites really yellow whereas here I think they look better as blues.

    It's all VSCO film from me in this thread. I don't use it all the time, but it does do what it says it does.
