Silver Toning a Black and White pic

I checked through the search to see if anyone has asked this but couldn't find anything:


I've seen quite a few Black and white portrait pics that have an almost silver tone about them. Does anyone know of a plugin capable of doing this.

Strangely enough 9 times out of ten they're always press pictures.

Any help appreciated. Thank you.

Not familiar with a plugin for it, but have seen it done directly in PS. I'll see if I can dig up the method for you... it's been a while.

It's also possible in litho printing to mix a metallic spot colour with black ink
to give a real silver finish.

I have tried to load the gradients but looks like I am getting simply a second set of default gradients. Wonder what am I doing wrong.
Thanks
