    Velvia Color in Lightroom 2

    I was able to make an action in Photoshop and found the steps on the internet to get Velvia like color. Was wondering is there a way to make that Photoshop action work in Lightroom 2? Or does anyone have the steps to getting Velvia color in Lightroom so I can make a preset?

    Thanks

    Well, I did some google searches before and came up with nothing. Until just a few minutes ago. Found a cool site that has a whole bunch of presets which are good starting points. Would still like to hear what other people might have as well?

    Why not just use the real thing? No need for any actions!

    I have used the real thing. This is just another tool that I'm trying to figure out

    Best of luck. I've used Roger Cavanagh's Velvia Variations script/actions on occasion in PS for digital images but haven't seen anything for Lightroom. It might be worth emailing him as he may have something for Lightroom.

    To begin with, what is your source ? Making velvia-like color starting from astia is very different from starting with neg film, and even more different from digi. And of course each digital camera is different.

    read the reviews on the Fuji S100FS digital camera

    The FS on the back end stands for Film Simulation. Also, for some time Fuji digitals have had a chrome setting which increases saturation. I believe the model is Fuji's OWN Velvia.

    Starting from a digital file from a Nikon D200. Just looking for something in the ballpark....
