+$10 best VSCO Instagram filters to enhance your feed

VSCO Instagram filters

+$VSCO Instagram filters are a go-to filter option for the social media platform, providing a solution to an imbalance in the platform's developing model. When Instagram was first created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, the cool, retro filters were Instagram's main selling point. But the platform started focusing more on the social media aspects and their own filters became neglected.

+$That's where third-party app, VSCO (previously known as VSCO Cam), saw an opportunity by providing a range of unique and expressive VSCO filters. Some are free forever, some free for a limited time only, and more than 100 others paid-for, as part of a yearly subscription. You can apply these VSCO filters, also known as presets, to both imported photos and those you take within the app itself.

+$On The Whole,VSCO+$’s filters give your images a subtle, filmic look that, when used thoughtfully, can raise them above the norm and add a real touch of sophistication. You can also, if you wish, tweak things further with the app’s own toolkit, which allows finer adjustments to fade, clarity, skin tone, tint, sharpen, saturation, contrast, temperature, exposure and much more.

Rachel Etheredge,战略家创意公园+$, is among the app's fans. “I wouldn’t use it for curated design work on my business feed, of course,” she notes. “But I love it for my personal Instagram.”

“我通过年度会员资格支付所有过滤器,”她解释道。 “我从一开始,用照片编辑工具调整和编辑它,直到我到达我喜欢的地方。您还可以将您创建的效果复制到任何其他照片上,这样您就不必记住所有调整。“



+$VSCO offers many more filters than Instagram, so you stand a better chance of finding one that will help your image stand out. But with hundreds to choose from, that can be a time-consuming business, so it’s good to have a few trusty go-tos to start out with. Here are 10 of our favourites.

+$01. HB1

+$Get a gritty look with HB1

+$Created in collaboration with men's fashion and streetwear brand Hypebeast, HB1 gives an dramatic, gritty look to photos shot on city streets. In essence, you can use it to turn quite a banal scene into an urban hip hop video.+$Chris Biss+$, A Designer AtMoreNiche+$in Nottingham is a big fan.

+$"I tend to use my main Instgram feed for design stuff but I post photos to my Instagram stories for which I'll usually use HB1, HB2 [the sibling filter to HB1) or Nike's ACG filter," he explains.

+$02. P5

+$P5 is a great filter for when you want to add a little grunge and grit to your image. It makes everything feel a little more edgy, a bit cooler and more atmospheric, like before a thunderstorm.

+$You can also add scratches and grain to the image using this filter, to really amp up the atmosphere.

+$03. A6

+$VSCO says the A6 filter is their most popular preset. We can see why. It gives a beautifully clean brightness whilst adding warmth to the richer tones. It makes colours more vibrant whilst lifting them. It creates a world we want to live in.

+$04. Dog 1, Dog 2 and Dog 3

VSCO Instagram filters: Dogs


+$Whether you loathed or loved Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs, you have to agree it had a very distinctive look. So it's great that the film makers have teamed up with VSCO to create three filters that allow you to give your own images the same look: Dog 1, Dog 2 and Dog 3. The first emphasises neutrals and mutes vibrant colours to give your images a, elegant, serene and classic look.

+$Dog 2 was inspired by the scene in the movie where student Tracey Walker calls on her classmates to take action. It boosts yellow hues and brightens your image. The effect is pretty full-on but when used in the right way it can certainly make your photos look distinctive.

+$The third has purple-pink neon hues and is inspired by a lab in Megasaki City.
