VSCO Grid

if you’re a regular iPhone snapper / Instagrammer (or, indeed, a professional photographer) you’ll be familiar with VSCO. their original VSCO Cam iPhone app is a favourite of many, with a handful of beautiful film presets and easy editing tools that turn your every day photos into something pretty magical. they just released their updated app (so you can’t get the old one anymore) – and it’s now free, but features in-app purchases for several film bundles. faded & moody; bright + clean; analog classic… take your pick. i haven’t played with it too much, but it is a sweet little app and i know it will help make my pretty average photos on instagram look just that little bit better.

the most exciting thing about the update for me is their release of VSCO Grid – a free minimalist publishing platform for people to showcase their mobile photography. they emphasise that it’s not a social media platform – i.e. not a competitor for Instagram – but rather, “focused on craft, curation and content, and less on followers and likes.” at the moment it’s in the beta / testing / let’s hope we don’t break the servers / only for awesome people phase, but hopefully it will roll out to the rest of us soon.

    Have you played with the in-app camera yet? Aside from VSCO’s filters always being top notch, the exposure and focus features on the camera are the best part of the whole thing. I’m excited for Grid, but I sure hope it doesn’t turn into a horrible social site cluttered with sloppy snapshots.

    • Miss Moss Saturday 8 June, 2013 at 10:48 pm #

      I played with it a bit more today and you’re right – I really noticed a difference with the exposure & focus. Also find the normal editing features really great (haven’t gone as far as buying the in app filters yet though)

  23. Ernie Wednesday 3 July, 2013 at 9:58 am #

    I love the update too. I just received my invitation code mine is erniepac.vsco.co I think ine of the big internet companies will huy this one just like what happened to Instagram and Tumblr and it will be a big photo sharing social app. It has huge potential. Hello! I’m calling Apple, Virb and Squarespace.

  24. Sophie // Sip Savour Share Wednesday 3 July, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    I love this! I have never used VSCO but I can’t wait to start. Those photos are stunning and I believe it will help take my photos to another level! Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Diana,

    I just got my grid yesterday and I’m wondering where you managed to set your profile picture. I can’t see any option in my profile settings – is there a trick I didn’t realize?

    You have a really nice grid btw :)

    Cheers,
    Daniel
