VSCO: the fashion image and video design app

VSCO image editor

As you know, photography with mobile phones has improved drastically, even surpassing some cameras and with truly professional results. Mobile phone photography has vastly improved since fuzzy jumbles of pixels and dull colors are a thing of the past. Today, even a modest megapixel mobile phone camera may be enough for most people, with some higher-end models capable of producing a more professional result. We can modify our photos with programs like Lightroom, Snapseed or Instagram itself. VSCO Cam, another great software, is another excellent application that I would like to comment on. It is available for both Apple and Android devices and its download is free, but to get the most out of it and access the filters that are updated most frequently, you have to pay around 20 euros per year after the 20-day free trial period.

As you already know, the company Visual Supply COmpany (hence its acronym), the creator of VSCO Cam, was founded in 2011, and the application would be launched around 2012. However, it was an app more linked to professional use and not as widespread. But the boom in social networks, especially TikTok, has made this app rise to fame, becoming one of the most downloaded due to its versatility and ideal features for this type of application.

Before taking a photo

VSCO Cam he has his own camera, so that you don't have to use the default camera of your mobile phone and you can take your photos directly from the app itself from which you will then edit the result, whether it is an image or a video, since it includes tools for both cases .

maybe this camera not the most powerful and advanced of all the existing camera apps, but it does offer the basic functions to obtain a good capture and that the results are really professional. In addition, it allows you to capture quickly and go directly to editing, something that other camera apps such as Camera + do not offer. It also has automatic fire, and other options that you are going to love.

Filters, the most outstanding potential of VSCO Cam

vsco filters

Amateurs abusing filters on social media are believed to have caused negative impressions on professionals. However, when used correctly, they can be a tremendous resource, saving you a lot of time in post-production. You can use VSCO Cam to create or edit the image, and you can do it with a wide range of filters, is precisely this what makes this apps stand out the most. VSCO Cam offers an unrivaled range of filters, all of which are of exquisite quality.

Here you can find everything you want, from black and white to vintage look or saturated colors. Many filters are available with a basic subscription, and more are accessible through the store, which also gives you the opportunity to adjust their intensity if you don't want the effect to be as strong. Filter parameters can also be edited, in addition to other parameters. In short, this makes the possibilities offered by the VSCO app even richer, with many options for amateur and professional users.

On the other hand, you will also find the typical editing tools to modify the results, such as contrast, saturation, exposure, cropping, rotation, and much more. The same happens with the tools for editing your videos, that you will find the typical ones of a video editor, like those of others like Inshot, etc.

More than an editing app

VSCO Cam is not only used to touch up multimedia content that you can upload to other social networks such as Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, etc., it also allows you to have a social network, a large community within the app itself. So you can share and see what others do, even be influenced by what you see or learn new techniques that you didn't know.

That is, it is also possible to save the photos on the phone using VSCO Cam, as well as export them. Also, you can share them directly with the main social networks like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, see and appreciate the content of other users in the small social network of VSCO Cam, etc. As this network does not reach the visibility of the big ones, it is not as crowded, but it is more than enough to see other people's work, learn, get ideas and see the true potential of VSCO Cam filters.

In short, you are going to have everything you need and more to edit the content, and for very little, only those €20 and a bit each year of fees to obtain the premium version and then some filter packs that are paid, but They usually cost nothing more than a few euro cents. If you think about it, it's not much to the professional results it offers...
