Fujifilm Film Simulation Modes for Raw files in Lightroom

Fujifilm Film Simulation Modes for Raw files

One of the great things about Fujifilm cameras is the ability to apply Film Simulation Modes to your JPEGs in-camera. These are a selection of settings that simulate the look and feel of some of Fujifilm’s best loved films including Provia, Velvia, Astia and many more.

Raw files obviously don’t carry the film simulation data, so what happens when you shoot Raw? The simple answer, if you process your shots using Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom, is that you can apply them as a profile during processing. Here’s are two tutorials to show you how o apply Fujifilm Film Simulation Modes

With the latest Fujifilm cameras you can enjoy a range of Film Simulation Modes covering colour and black & white film styles. If you’re using an older Fujifilm camera such as the X-Pro 1 or X-E1, you can still apply a slightly smaller number of modes than with a newer camera such as the X-Pro 3, X-T4 and X100V. Within some of the film simulations there are additional options to select.

Below are two videos showing how to apply Film Simulation Modes in newer and older versions of Lightroom Classic.
