Use the VSCO app on your PC. It is a place where expression matters most. The app offers creative photo and video editing tools, inspiration, and a place for you to be yourself.
What is the VSCO PC app?
VSCO for PC is a photo editing and media sharing tool. The free version gives users access to standard editing tools, such as white balance, exposure, contrast, and a sampling of the available presets. Users can scroll and test out presets themselves or can tap on the “for this photo” feature, which displays a collection of suggested presets for each specific photograph.
Users can share their images and videos to the app’s feed and/or share them directly from VSCO for Windows app to other social media or digital platforms, including Facebook, Snapchat, WhatsApp, email, or text. Paid membership grants users access to over 170 presets and more sophisticated editing tools, including editing tools for video and vintage film re-creation.
VSCO’s minimal, intuitive interface belies powerful photo-shooting and photo-editing tools. It also offers great-looking web galleries for your images, but VSCO lacks anywhere near Flickr or Instagram’s social interaction features. As mentioned, the company behind the app has a history with professional photo filter software, most notably Film, which reproduces the looks of analog film photos. It now puts that expertise to use in this appealing app.
What does it offer?
Membership also opens the door to photo challenges, editing tips, and tutorials. User’s edited photos are collected in their personal studio. They can also design a journal entry, which allows them to tell a story with a collection of their favorite photos. And members can create a DSCO, which is essentially a GIF.
You can work with photos already in your camera roll or shoot pictures in the app’s Studio mode. At the outset of this section, I should note that the Android version of the app’s camera feature has none of the shooting options found in the iPhone version, described here. VSCO for PC shows that it has learned from apps like Camera+, with options such as letting you separately choose focus and exposure points with two fingers to produce on-screen targets.
In addition to editing photos and creating content, you will be able to directly communicate with users if they mutually follow each other. The app users can follow other members to consistently see their content on their feed and to communicate with them through private messaging. A tool for artistic self-expression and inspiration, the material posted represents diverse interests, points of view, and realities.
Some of these in-app purchases are completely free of charge. There is an option for an annual subscription which gives access to more exclusive editing tools.
Most of the material is appropriate for all ages, but some material depicts sexy, suggestive, or substance-related material. Users can report inappropriate content such as nudity or violence for removal.
