Why don’t the Replichrome presets look exactly like my film?

The final look of real film is influenced by a LOT of variables, and we can’t account for all of them in our emulation profiles. The setup of your lab, the scanner they use, the experience and taste of the lab tech, your exposure and lighting habits, age of the film, etc all influence the final look, so it’s nearly impossible to have an exact match for any film in a general sense. Our presets are based on film sent to Richard Photo Lab in Hollywood, CA, which is a highly regarded professional lab, and our presets are generally a pretty good match for film sent there.
