The Kodachrome action got me thinking about what other films I could simulate. Velvia is one that's in a lot of plug-ins and actions, and again, I don't think it ever looks very accurate. I boosted greens and blues with a selective color adjustment layer along with some other little alterations. It's got the exaggerated look of the film without blowing the highlights in the color channels. I also had a try at Portra because all of the actions I've made so far aren't very good with skin tones. It has boosted blacks with an overall low contrast look and softened skin tones.
