VSCO introduced you to photo editing. Color.io invites you to master it. Push beyond the limitations of VSCO with professional-grade tools for color and film emulation that will easily take your images to the next level.
Advanced Color Grading for Photographers.
Color.io is a web based color grading app that brings cinema-grade color and film emulation tools to creators. It helps you create natural, photographic colors that deeply integrate into your images so that even extreme edits never look artificial.
A (giant) leap beyond VCSO Studio.
There's no denying it - the VSCO app has made photo editing accessible for all. It's got a nice set of filters, a user-friendly interface, and it works well for quick edits on the go. But let's be real, there comes a time when you want more. More control, more depth, more possibilities. That's where Color.io comes in.
Analog color science. For deeper pixels.
Color.io combines analog color modelling with the ease and flexibility of digital color grading. Powered by the VisionColor Halide™ Engine and a revolutionary ACES © color managed workflow, it is now easier than ever to bring out highly dense colors from your images.
Exceptional color (and texture) emulation.
Every control in Color.io is driven by an engine that models the complex, non-linear response behaviours of analog film. This allows photographers to easily bring out dense, painterly colors from their images with best-in-class cinema color science, a huge preset library and powerful color transformation tools that enable color grading images with much more depth and control than VSCO.
With support for over 600 cameras, Color.io serves as a comprehensive raw editor. So, unlike VSCO Pro for web, which offers basic tools, Color.io allows you to dig deep into your raw files and bring out their full potential with an ultra-wide-gamut, high dynamic range color space, which means that it can capture all detail in both the highlights and shadows of an image - a perfect starting point for grading.
Real Film Halation.
Easily recreate the nostalgic charm of film photography. Color.io comes with optical film halation simulation that recreates the effect of very bright light causing orange-red highlight glow on analog film.
Preview color transforms in three dimensions in real time. It's like a histogram but better.
Grade hundreds of images at the same time. Multiple documents, batch export your edits - you got it!
Think you've seen good grain emulation? Wait until you try Color.io. Rather than overlaying grain textures like VSCO and other tools, Color.io deconstructs your image and rebuilds it pixel-by-pixel from simulated halide crystals. This results in an incredibly organic look because the underlying pixel structure of digital images is entirely reconstructed to match the grain distribution, density, rotation, size, and color gradation of real film. It's like having a film lab in your pocket, but without the chemicals and wait time.
"The next best thing to shooting on film!"
Color.io empowers photographers, colorists and creators at all skill levels to craft their unique vision of color. Our color science and film design tools are trusted by the world's leading brands and creatives for unparalleled color depth and visual impact.
