Replichrome by Totally Rad--Bringing the Look of Film to Digital

by Kristina

If you follow this blog, you may know that I am a big fan of RadLab from Totally Rad.  I love how easy it is to process my images using this fantastic tool.  So when I was recently contacted to try out their latest offering, Replichrome, I jumped at the chance.

Replichrome is a post processing tool that is used to edit RAW photos (it does not work accurately on jpeg images) in Lightroom and ACR.  It includes 134 presets that brings the look of film to digital photography.

The dudes at Totally Rad went through a lot of work to develop these presets to make them as accurate as possible.  They knew that film lovers would want the very best and went through painstaking steps to create this product.  You can read about how they developed Replichrome here.

Honestly, I am new to film presets, but I have to say that after trying out Replichrome, I am hooked.  I love the artistic look I can achieve with this editing tool.  I will say that I am not a huge fan of grain and found myself tweaking that on most of my images, but other than that I loved the effect I got on my photos with just a simple click.  

As you will see below in some of my images the effect is subtle but in others there is a little more punch.  You can also see more samples on my business blog, Kristina Rust Photography.
