Kodachrome and Lightroom

Today’s Photo

A few weeks ago I mentioned in a post about what was essentially the end of Kodachrome after the final roll had been processed at the end of 2010. Recently I came across (thanks Craig) a set of free Develop presets for Lightroom that attempt to emulate the look of Kodachrome. There’s over 20 different presets that cover the range of Kodachrome 25 up to Kodachrome 200, with a number of different grains and tones. Today’s photo uses a preset for Kodachrome 200, although I’ve added a few other minor tweaks of my own. Emulation will of course never replace the original, but if you’re yearning for that Kodachrome look, these presets should provide you with a good starting point. You can download the Lightroom presets from the X-Equals blog. And while you’re there, you may want to have a look around their site. These guys have some useful tips and information on post-processing in Lightroom and Photoshop.
