  2. Go to the VSCO store and discover their site is down for maintenance and take it as a sign that you shouldn’t spend all of your money on presets (because VSCO sets are super expensive. Worth it though).Screen Shot 2017-01-28 at 9.32.42 PM
  3. Search for some other presets that are free instead. Maybe do some research about what are some decent sets.Screen Shot 2017-01-28 at 9.33.46 PM
