All photographers would like to receive portra 400 Lightroom preset free or film presets Lightroom from VSCO, but not everyone is ready to give $59 per a package. So, a couple of years ago the company released a free VSCO Lightroom presets package called Film Pack 00, where there were only two VSCO Lightroom presets free: Kodak Gold and Kodak Tri-X. They provided 16 effects that slightly changed the photos. The main benefit of this bundle was that they give the photos some special features and correct defects caused by poor lighting.
We downloaded the Lightroom presets VSCO, namely, the portra 400 preset free and experimented a little. But unfortunately, these films got lost somewhere and we can’t find them in Google. The link on the VSCO’s official site where we downloaded these free VSCO Lightroom presets, is no longer active. In the article “Free Download: VSCO Film Pack 00 includes Tri-X and Kodak Gold Film presets” we read, that VSCO company do not provide a free VSCO preset for Lightroom bundle no more.

Therefore, we decided to analyze the requests for this topic in order to understand what these free Lightroom presets can offer us. All requests were divided into 3 parts.
During our surfing of Lightroom VSCO presets free, we find many websites that offer other VSCO presets Lightroom– VSCO’s analogs or fakes. These companies use their name for commercial purposes. We have downloaded some of them and can say that they don't have anything in common with the original VSCO film presets Lightroom. In most cases, these are some ordinary and cheap Film or Vintage effects. You can use them, but the result will not be as attractive and interesting as original packs from VSCO have.
We often stumbled upon the articles that covered this topic. Many posts told us about various VSCO presets, but in the end it was impossible to download anything. Sometimes in such articles, you can find useless links that lead to other sites where paid presets are offered. So, if you see an article with a title “VSCO free Lightroom presets”, you can't expect that you will download them.
In the web we came across a lot of websites that offered us to download the hacked VSCO presets that are official and can be downloaded for free. This content violates the ownership of the VSCO company products. They offer free download of all original VSCO preset Lightroom packages, in exchange for a lot of time spent to download them. Moreover, these files can easily damage your computer system after installation.
Summing up, we don't recommend you to look for VSCO free Lightroom presets, because there are no official VSCO presets for Lightroom free in the web, otherwise, they are provided illegally. In turn, we recommend buying LR presets on VSCO official website only.
