  1. Hello! Back in 2017 Fujifilm launched their 1st medium-format mirrorless camera: the Fujifilm GFX50S. It contained all the Fujifilm "film simulations" that us Fujifilm camera users have all come to know and love, but it gained an extra effect: the Color Chrome effect. This effect was inspired by Fujifilm's own FUJICHROME Fortia SP film, which promised even greater contrast and colours in comparison to the world-famous Velvia 50. Quoting Fujifilm-X: This Color Chrome effect was later ported to newer Fujifilm-X cameras, such as the Fujifilm X-T3 and the X-T30. Unfortunately, us older Fujifilm-X users (I have a Fujifilm X-T2) may never see this effect on their camera. So I've resolved to try and recreate it, which is pretty easy to do in Affinity Photo. https://www.iancylkowski.com/blog/2020/7/4/fujifilm-color-chrome-effect-how-to-recreate-in-affinity-photo The tutorial utilises Affinity Photo's LAB colour mode in the Curves Adjustment tool, which is so, so handy. I've also created two Affinity Photo Macros; both speed up the creation of the LAB Colour Boost layer as well as the creation of a Saturation Mask. I've attached them here. Here's some before and afters. This is the sample image I used, straight out of camera using the Provia (Standard) film simulation. This is the image with some minor edits I made (change from Provia to Velvia, largely). This is with my Color Chrome effect applied. Do let me know if this tutorial is OK to link to here, or not. I hope this proves useful! Let me know if the effect needs some improvement. LABColourBoost.afmacro SaturationMask.afmacro
