How to run the editor VSCO online on your computer

Many owners of mobile gadgets are used to the cool graphic editor VSCOCam. But some are interested in the possibility of using VSCO online for your computer. That’s what this review will talk about.


What is the VSCOCam® application?

This software is unique in its own way and is designed for people who take a lot of pictures with their smartphone cameras for the purpose of post-processing. Despite the extensive functionality, the utility is extremely easy to use, even beginners will be able to understand the interface in a matter of minutes.

It should be noted that VSCO online editor (you can download it for Android here, and for iOS here) is not a typical tool for applying filters, correcting brightness and contrast. It’s more than that, practically a professional online studio for photographers.

By the way, the software is developed by the company with the same name, which has created quite a few add-ons for the Photoshop application. And the name of the software stands for Visual Supply Co Camera (I don’t even know how to translate it correctly).

This is one of the marketing moves of the company – a comparison of a picture taken with iPhone (the model, alas, is not specified) and with the VSCOCam program:

Definitely, the light on the right is richer and contrast is better, but some details are greatly darkened. All in all, there is a lot to complain about.

As you may have already guessed, the utility allows you not only to work with the already taken footage, but also to take pictures in online mode, preliminarily “trying on” the effects. Not only the main camera of smartphones is supported, but also the front camera (which is already an advantage over peers).

Above I gave links to download for different mobile platforms. But you can also download the software directly from the official website. There you can also find a detailed overview of the features.

Launching VSCO Online for PC

Unfortunately, the developers did not create a version for PC, but this is not a reason to get upset, because we have at our disposal an amazing tool – Android OS emulator – Bluestacks ..

What do you need to do?

  • Go to the emulator download page. It is in Russian, so the search for the download button should not be a problem;
  • Install the prog in the standard way – double-click on the downloaded file, select the drive and installation folder (or leave it by default);
  • After a few minutes on the desktop will appear shortcut Bluestacks;
  • After opening the utility find the “Magnifying glass” icon (should be at the top right) and enter the query “VSCO” (VSCO will not work).

  • All that’s left is to install the desired application from Google Market – It takes no more than 10 seconds.

The only thing is that the control may at first seem unfamiliar, because to select the necessary filters, etc., you will have to use the computer mouse, not your finger. But I think this is an insignificant problem.

An alternative to VSCO online editor for PC

For some reason, many people are put off by installing an emulator, so I suggest a full-fledged replacement – the Pixlr online tool. With it you can take photos on your webcam and work with them, or select files on your computer to edit. There is also a web version of the utility.

Once you have uploaded your photos to the program, you can:

  • Apply visual effects and filters (more than ten are available);
  • Apply textures to the image, change the background;
  • Add frames of various themes.

Each of your choices is immediately displayed on the screen, so you can see what fits and what doesn’t. Pixlr-O-Matic is one of the most popular online editors abroad, but recently many domestic users have been using it as well. No emulators, installations and downloads. But there is one drawback – the interface is in English. Although everything is very simple, I am sure you will figure it out!

As you can see VSCO online for computer can be downloaded free only through Bluestacks. If this option suits you – fine, otherwise you should follow my advice and use an alternative Pixlr.
