PictureFX Vintage Kodachrome 1936 Frank Glencairn

Frank Glencairn’s article and the Luts were a success, many readers have visited his page and downloaded the Luts.It is not every day that an award winning filmmaker gives away free coloring Luts.And judging by the photo of Frank, he seems to be a very nice guy to.As I wrote, the Lut in Cube formatContinue reading “PictureFX Vintage Kodachrome 1936 Frank Glencairn”

New Film Simulation: PictureFX Cinematic – National Geographic

National Geographic, a new PictureFX Film Simulation in the Cinematic series.The previous Cinematic Simulation called “Crime Scene” was published in November 2020, so it’s high time for a new one !This one (and another one) actually stayed in the drawer for a long time, on one hand because I was also working on other simulations,Continue reading “New Film Simulation: PictureFX Cinematic – National Geographic”

PictureFX Fujifilm Classic Chrome – Cross Processed

As with the PictureFX versions of the “in camera” Fujifilm Simulations and the “real film” based Superia 200, I had spend a lot of time researching, in this case how to Cross Process digitally.I am not going to explain what Cross Processing is, because you probably know that, but we will go over the techniquesContinue reading “PictureFX Fujifilm Classic Chrome – Cross Processed”

New developed CUBE files for Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Davinci Resolve,…

PictureFX Pro Provia, Velvia, Classic Chrome, Superia 200, Acros 100II – CUBE A while ago I started converting Lut’s to Cube format, because there was a demand for it.For this I installed conversion software on my computer, and according to the creator of that software the resulting .cube files are suitable for Adobe CS6 andContinue reading “New developed CUBE files for Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Davinci Resolve,…”

PictureFX Pro Fujifilm Superia 200

Although Fujifilm Superia is not one of the standard film simulations on a Fujifilm camera, Fuji still has a “similar to” (as they say themselves) in their options, namely the Classic Negative.For some strange reason, Fujifilm Superia was not considered a film for “Professional” use.But after reading countless reviews, visiting chat rooms and forums, photoContinue reading “PictureFX Pro Fujifilm Superia 200”

PictureFX Lomo Flower Power

Hi Guys! Whasup ! Feeling Lomo and a bit Flower Power! No, I haven’t been smoking something 🙂This is just a new PictureFX creation.The next Film Simulation is still days if not weeks away, To put it briefly, for a sunset filter you need a sunset, for a “real film” simulation I need specific subjectsContinue reading “PictureFX Lomo Flower Power”

PictureFX Color Toning Pro – Topaz – Topaz Silver and Topaz Gold

Very popular with many photographers were and still are the well-known effects from Nik Collection (now Dxo) with names of precious metals like platinum efex and palladium efex, first applied to Black and White and later also in Color photography. These effects were the reason that I started creating Haldcluts myself to have my ownContinue reading “PictureFX Color Toning Pro – Topaz – Topaz Silver and Topaz Gold”

PictureFX Pro Base Tone Curve – Cube/Lut for Adobe, Rawtherapee, Luminar …

Probably the most important part in RAW development : the “Tone Curve”. Technically, this new PictureFX Tone Curve is not a Film Simulation, however, it has been developed for en is part of the PictureFX Pro Fujifilm Color series.This specific Curve has been further fine-tuned since then, and is now intended as a starting pointContinue reading “PictureFX Pro Base Tone Curve – Cube/Lut for Adobe, Rawtherapee, Luminar …”

PictureFX Fujifilm V3.0 Color Filmpack – 3D LUT – Cube

New ! PictureFX Film Simulations now also for Adobe, Luminar …

Apparently there is an interest in PictureFX Luts but for use in programs other than Rawtherapee/Artherapee and Darktable.It is my good friend Mark G Adams who brought this to my attention.Unfortunately, I don’t have one of those image editing programs, but I do have a converter to convert Haldclut’s to .cube format.Mark has been soContinue reading “New ! PictureFX Film Simulations now also for Adobe, Luminar …”

Download the New PictureFX Pro Fujifilm Color and B&W Luts

This new series of Luts is actually part of the workshops, but it is precisely because of the workshops that they have become a bit forgotten. That is why I want to give some attention to the new Luts before the next workshop is ready and released.Two different downloads, the first is the PictureFX ProContinue reading “Download the New PictureFX Pro Fujifilm Color and B&W Luts”

PictureFX (Fuji)film Simulation Workshop – Create your own Film Simulation + download Presets and Curves

Over time I learned that the best and fastest way to make film simulations without getting frustrated is to start simple.A method that works very well is the comparative method – two instances of Rawtherapee open on top of each other.It is also very important to know some adjustment and setting methods in Rawtherapee, itContinue reading “PictureFX (Fuji)film Simulation Workshop – Create your own Film Simulation + download Presets and Curves”

PictureFX Fujifilm Acros 400 IR

If someone gives me an idea and it’s about something I like to do, I tend to start right away. Not always nice for the people close to me, who actually hope that I will make some more time with the holidays for them. So this is going to be my last article of thisContinue reading “PictureFX Fujifilm Acros 400 IR”

PictureFX Fujifilm Acros 100 & 100 II

It’s true, there were actually two versions of Acros, but in film simulation they don’t talk about it.Acros was the original version and it was available until 2018.In 2019, Fujifilm introduced Acros 100 II, just one year ago, and to say that we are in the digital age ! I’am a bid surprised they did,Continue reading “PictureFX Fujifilm Acros 100 & 100 II”

It’s Here, the new PictureFX Fujifilm Classic Chrome

And there is not one but two!but more on that later. It was a race to get them ready in this short time, blood, sweat and tears have flowed – not really, but you know what I mean I guess 🙂But it was painful, after having done a lot of work creating profiles and fineContinue reading “It’s Here, the new PictureFX Fujifilm Classic Chrome”

PictureFX Fujifilm Provia – a brand new Lut !

I’ve cheated 😦I said I wasn’t going to make real 35mm film simulations, but I did.It all started with a new workflow that I’ve been trying to stick to for a while.In the past I converted SOOC jpegs to a lower resolution to use on the internet, the original jpegs were kept, the converted oneContinue reading “PictureFX Fujifilm Provia – a brand new Lut !”

PictureFX Cinematic – Crime Scene

Finally, they are here ! Prior to this new series of Luts “Cinematic” that I developed (and still are), a lot of research went into cinematic color design and film color schemes. The Lut sets I’ve been working on are geared towards Drama, Comedy, Action and Crime, All the Luts mentioned here and in theContinue reading “PictureFX Cinematic – Crime Scene”

PictureFX Faux Infrared

Infrared pictures. You either love it or you hate it. A bit the same as with HDR photography I think, you have people in favor of and against, but even within the people in favor you have differences. There are those who say that it should be subtle and not exaggerated, on the other sideContinue reading “PictureFX Faux Infrared”

PictureFX B&W and NOIR film simulation luts

A Brand New Set ( 17 ) of PictureFX Lut’s – all Black and White and … Noir ! The B&W Lut’s are based on the basic adjustments in RawTherapee combined with a filter layer, as you would apply in the analog era by means of a screw-on glass filter on the lens of yourContinue reading “PictureFX B&W and NOIR film simulation luts”

Cover Picture September

I can say little about the subject except that it is an abandoned military camp. The picture was taken with Fujifilm X-T10 with Samyang 12mm f2.0 NCS CS. The more I use this lens the more I like it. The wide angle certainly, but using a manual lens that you hardly need to focus isContinue reading “Cover Picture September”

New ! – PictureFX – Mystical Series

4 years have passed since I made the first version of PictureFX, I was a user of Gimp and RawTherapee, but I was always jealous of the pictures I saw on the web in HDR or with special effects developed in Photoshop or with Nik software.There were presets/profiles and also HaldCluts available, but more withContinue reading “New ! – PictureFX – Mystical Series”
