The Story of Filmist film presets

I had tried film presets and wanted a better film collection. So I created Filmist presets for Lightroom as Capture One Styles and as LUTS. Just Choose your film look. Like Portra, Classic Neg, Natura 1600, Delta, and many more. If you want, develop more with easy chemical-inspired mod presets!

I'm Gavin Seim and I started making professional presets in the first version of Lightroom. After years of watching Lightroom improve and deep testing with Capture One, it was time. We set out to build the most authentic film presets and styles pack. 

I love film and shot a lot on 4x5.  When I launched the first revision if Filmist, it was good, but not as good as I wanted. I made constant free updates, obsessing to get them more and more perfect. Now in 2022,  Filmist is a game changer for authentic intelligent edits

Filmist costs less than a few rolls of film but keeps on giving you that rich look that feels like film. Because the formulas and tinkering needed for quality film presets are complex. Good presets are essential if you want the looks. Hundreds of hours of work, research and revision are needed. 

A great film looks gives your edits credibility and character. Filmist is your secret weapon. Start with Filmist presets to get that authentic look from the first click. With Filmist presets, the work is done for you so you can focus on the creative side of your photography.

I really like the effects! Thanks.

A smashing success...

I found your style/preset, and I began using it (with some minor additions of my own). It has been a smashing success, and I am so thankful you made this product. It has given me a new lease on life with my Nikon, allowing me to have the best of both worlds.

I’m digging Filmist...

I don’t always include presets in my workflow, but I do like to keep a good set of them in my toolbox... I’m digging Filmist, and it definitely has earned its place in my toolkit.

Matthew - The Turning Gate

blew me away

FAR OUT. My first application of one of your presets blew me away! Just one click, no other adjustments.

Thank you.

As always, easy to use with great potential to work in all situations.

Film Gen.2 | The next era of Portra, Natura 1600 and more.

All of Filmist is beautiful.  But included in the latest version of Filmist are the the Gen.2 variants. All Gen 2. recipes have been formulated to an ultra fine level to get that Film nearly perfect. Here's an example of the new Gen.2 Portra films. There's also new Gen.2 Natura and more updates on the way.

Portra 160 - for perfect soft contrast and beautiful pastel earth colors.

Portra 400 - for balance and the legendary Kodak portrait warmth 

Portra 800 - for bolder colors and a deeper contrast with rich grain.


Nothing is quite like shooting film. The way rolls off highlights and blends colors and tones. Coming back to film after over a decade of pure digital helped capture film in digital recipes like never before in Lightroom presets, Capture One Styles and LUTS for video. 

The included Filmist Chem-Kit mod presets take it even further. Inspired by darkroom tools, grains and chemical baths. You can use any film as is, or quickly mod it with tonal and dynamic range baths, grain mods and more.

Every film simulation on any camera.

When Filmist presets are created they are tested on lots of files. Fuji users will love the homage paid to Fuji culture with looks like Classic Neg and the new Classic Chrome looks. Or add amazing renditions of films like Natura 1600. The best part is there no camera limitations. Every simulation works work on any camera, RAW, JPEG, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, everything. That's why Filmist is better than camera profiles or JPEG shooting. Because it's inspired by the darkroom.

Filmist Preset FAQ's

  • How Many Presets do I get with Filmist: 
    Filmist includes 60 emulsion formulas plus about 15 chem-kit of and utility tools to quickly mix up your film looks. I say about because I'm always doing updates and adding new presets. See the full list above.
  • Will they work in Windows or Mac? Yes, Filmist is fully compatible with Lightroom, Capture One and any app that can use LUTS whether it's on Windows or Mac. You can watch install videos on the help page.
  • Can I use Filmist presets for Lightroom Mobile? Yes and they work amazing. You can install on the LR Web desktop and sync them, or you can now download and install all on your mobile without ever using a desktop. There's a video about this on the help page.
  • How will I update Filmist presets? When I make a new update I'll send you an email. You can simply download the new version and replace the old. There's a vidoe on the  help page about updating if you have any problems.
  • Is Filmist available as a standalone app? No, rather than trying to build yet another editing app Filmist uses the apps you already have with their native tools, juts like all my products. There's no need for another to slow your workflow.
  • Will the presets work on any camera? Yes, I design Filmist to be universal. Whatever camera you use, Filmist will work. RAW files are better for accurate film color, but you can of course use them on JPEGS, TIFFS, Mobile files.
  • Can I use Filmist on Video? Yes, FIlmist includes a LUT pack with all 60+ of the main emulsion that can be loaded in a video app liek Resolve, Premire Pro or any app that  includes LUTS. 
  • Can I use Filmist in other Apps? Yes, the LUTS can also be used in other apps like Affinity photo and OnOne RAW and more  as LUTS are universal presets that are not brand specific.

What makes Seim products different?

I'm Gavin Seim and I started studying photography in 1997.

As digital arrived, I went all in. I got to study with masters like Ken Whitmire. In 2009 I founded the Pro Photo Show podcast. I started promoting tone-focused editing, then I started developing presets, Styles, Photoshop Actions and photo courses to make our photography better.

20+ years in the trenches earned me a Masters (M.Photog) from PPA. I've been featured, won a few awards and now I live in Mexico exploring the magical light of the South while creating new tools and searching for shadows.

Everything here is lovingly crafted by a photographer, not a marketing agency! You're rightly skeptical on online photography things. That's why all sales are NOT FINAL here. I guarantee every one of my tools and workshops 100% with my 31 day IRON Guarantee!
