Albumen (1860's Civil War era) Preset by vidular - Site:
Albumen, a process used to create photos of this era seem to have very sharp clear centers, good dynamic range blurry/distorted edges often with vignetting. In looking at the old images from the American Civil War era it was learned that the surviving photos vary in coloration from yellow to gray, brown to almost purple in hue. Yellow seems to be most common so there is some freedom in crafting the coloration. Download here.

Fuji Velvia X-Pro Presets by GrayImaging - Site: www.lifeindigitalfilm.com/
This preset is an emulation of Fuji Velvia that has been cross processed in C-41 chemistry.

The curve is rather sharp, leading toward blown highlights and the colors slightly muted over properly processed Velvia. Download here.
