Help plz - trying for vintage/cross-processed look

Hi there,

I have the pic which has a lot of vintage/cross-processing potential, but I can't achieve the look I'm after. Not sure if this would be a look pic for texture as well. I would appreciate some help and some ideas... I'm at a bit of a loss. Higher resolution photo is at

Thank you!
Pam

First of all please post sample of that vintage look, that you want to achieve.

Re: Help plz - trying for vintage/cross-processed

gmitchel has put together a couple filter preset collections from The Light's Right... Cross-Processing Lightroom Presets and Cross-Processing Adobe Camera Raw Presets

I am submitting, Not a cross-processed look, but a couple different looks just for consideration

first just using the Shadow/Highlight filter works wonders

second is a single image HDR Tonemap combined with the original

~~ Original ~~ ~~ Shadow/Highlight~~ Settings ~~ Tone-mapped

Re: Help plz - trying for vintage/cross-processed

I am now downloading Dynamic HDR, but I have been reliant on strictly photoshop.. but I love the look of the tonemapping image. I am trying the trial version, as it says it might be confusing on a Mac, so if you have a recommendation for software I would appreciate it. Also, any direction for tonemap would be apprecaited.

Pam, I have not used the Dynamic HDR software but it should do what you want

Back to the original ? ... mutato-nomine @ deviantart has created a Cross-Processing Action 'Cross-Processing ATN' that may also fit your needs

Thank you again! I will upload that cross-processed action. Thank you. I ended up going to the Photomatix Pro for the HDR and tone mapping. I like the stand alone feature as well as the plugins. Now I just have to play with that.

There is a list of even more third-party color alteration options here under "Color alteration effects".
