Soft Chrome for Gentle Natural Tones

Classic Chrome film recipe for Fujifilm X100V, X-E4, X-S10, X-T4, X-T30ii

Sometimes you just want a simple classic look that works just about everywhere. The Soft Chrome film recipe is my interpretation of that. It takes the versatile Classic Chrome film simulation, and adds a soft tone vibe.

And although this recipe isn’t a Kodak clone, it still shares many of the same qualities, thanks to the wonderful tones of the Classic Chrome simulation. It uses settings that capture a lower contrast and saturation, meaning that this recipe can be used is just about any situation.
