Mimicking Cross Processing Effect

Does anyone have any techniques for mimicking the effect that you get from processing E6 Slide Film in C41 Chemicals. I have had a play with increasing contrast, and saturating colours but cant seem to get it right. Are there particular Channels that you would work on the get the effect.

Here is a free action from Shan Canfield that does crossprocessing. Noise to Signal reviews and comments it.

I found it with a Google search on "photoshop cross-processing". There is a lot more info there.

I have an action set that mimicks both C41-E6 and E6-C41 effects with lots of optional tints, too.

Enjoy!

Cheers,

Thank you for this action, Mitch.

I was working on this effect in another current thread. I used your C41-E6 (Green) to achieve it more easily than there. The tweakable adustment layers were key to get the result I wanted.

Nice result.

I tried to make the actions as flexible as I could.

I used solid fill adjustment layers rather than photo filter adjustment layers to keep the actions compatible with PS7 and earlier.

You can adjust layer opacity. You can adjust the fill color. You can adjust the Blend If settings to affect where the tint is applied.

(The cross-processing effects in Photokit Color Effects are fewer and you can only adjust layer opacity. Plus they really bloat files with their pixel layers.)

Have fun with the actions. You're off to a great start with your sample.

Cheers,

Mitch

Simple Cross Processing Effect

[FONT=Arial]I accidentally stumpled accross this in Photoshop and think it looks pretty close to the effect gained by Cross Processing Slide Film.
I took the original colour image and added a "Gradient Map" adjustment layer. The gradient was set from black to a copper/brown colour ( R 235, G 190, B 119). I then set the layer effect to Overlay. I then duplicated that layer for a stronger effect. You can adjust the opacity of both layers to suit your taste. Let me know what you think. The "Hue" layer effect can also produce nice effects here.

PS - I also used a mask and gradient to add the stormy effect to the sky.

It's as if they are walking in a painting.

This is a really cool (and wise) couple to want these effects in their wedding album!

ok, i'm going to risk my sanity here and ask. what are you guys talking about? i get that E6 must be a film type and that perhaps C41 chemicals are a batch of chemicals used to process a certain film type and that by using chemicals to process one film type may not be the same as for all film types and that by using a 'wrong' chemical type you could get a different end result. but for those of us who dont know what these films look like and what the various chemicals do in processing and how they look in end results, i, at least, am lost here. some examples of the films done 'right' and done 'wrong' might help give us some idea of what it is you're looking for.

now, it's a bit moot for me, since being a psp user i cant use ps actions, but there are always filters and plugins and so on that i might be able to help with if i knew what the effect is you all are going for.

then again, it would seem you're getting where you want to go without my help. still, it would be nice to have some idea of what you guys are talking about

Here is the Wikipedia definition. In particular, follow the C41 link.

So color negative film by the C41 chemical process gives normal color negatives. Color transparency film by the E6 chemical process gives normal color transparencies.

I think those are Kodak's names originally.

Here are some examples of chemical cross-processing.
