Can't help you, but...

... in the link below, there are many picture styles created by other photographers. Some of them try to mimic RDP and RVP.

Re: picture style setting to look like fuji provia

I think you'll have a tough time getting to a Provia look with picture style settings only.

I'd suggest either figuring out how to within photoshop and create an action for this, or take a look at eg. Alien Skin Exposure as a add-on.

There's a Velvia PS plug in over at FM ...

... works well and gives you a lot of options. There might be a stand alone version as well.

I have noticed that simply changing camera picture setting can make a big difference ... I don't shoot jpegs, but I think the results are about the same when converting from RAW. For example, in ACR, selecting landscape really makes colors pop ... too much for me, but perhaps more what you are looking for. I think you can get the same result if you are shooting jpegs by selecting landscape as a picture setting. If you have not experimented there, try different one and see what effect you like.

Another suggestion, if you're talking outdoors, is to use a polorizer. Cuts down glare and brings out colors.

Not sure if you mean in screen or printed ... either can be influenced by things like monitor calibration, printer profiles, etc.

DxO film plug-in is what you need

DxO has some photo plug-ins that work very well. I do not use them much myself, but here is that distinct "look & feel":

Re: DxO film plug-in is what you need

awesome! How'd you get that color scheme? is it from DxO? I know it'll work on some images, but not on others... I have tried many ways to "mimc film coloring" and yet, I'm still on the search for "the one". I have a provia/velvia action set, but it seems to be "too much". I have Nik Software, and though it's good, it's still not quite what I'm looking for!

Anyways, Let me know your processing techniques! (Btw, image seems under exposed)

What film look is that supposed to be?

Not the Velvia 50 (@40) I know.

That doesnt look like Provia, that's for sure.

You're not gonna find it. None of those software plugins, or whatever, get it right.

Try it out

This is the Velvia 50 plug-in straight from DxO (I'll post the original photo further down)

I darkened the picture a little to make it look a little more "60's"-like.

You can download and try DxO film pack for free if you go to their site (no affiliation whatsoever). There are also many samples to view there.

My orginal and two DxO film pack variations

Original:

Velvia 50 & darkened:

Provia 100 vs straight through DxO:

DxO also does the film gain if you want that (not applied here)

Good luck!

Actually I think the plug-in is quite good. This was also darkened. Look at the DxO website for more samples.

Velvia/provia Photoshop action

There's a pretty good Photoshop action at Actions Central,

http://www.atncentral.com/

There's also one for Elements

Expired Provia/velvia Look

I don't know how to describe it, but I've seen a lot of photographs on flickr that use expired Provia/Velvia with fast lenses, that look like they were shot through a blue filter. Does anyone know how to get that look on actual film or digitally? I shoot both.

Re: picture style setting to look like fuji provia

yes you can get the settings you require in Nik Colour Efex Pro 3 it comes as a photoshop plugin. It has Provia 100f & 400f and various other settings from Fuji Agfa Kodak
