Re: How to make similar amazing effect like this

Hello again Yoku: This process is used to set Black and White points on your portraits. You can use this, either after applying the Lab Color process, or individually. It gives you a nice balance on your photos. Here it goes:

1- Open your image, and click the round black and white icon at the lower layers palette, and then click Threshold. Pick your color sampler tool at the tools menu.

2- To set your white point pull the slider hard right, and then back to the left just a little bit until you start to see the first white spot of your image, click on the spot with the color dropper tool. (white point set)

3- To set your black point pull the slider hard left, and then back to the right just a little bit until you start to see the first black spot of your image, click on the spot with the color dropper tool. (black point set)

4- Once you have your 2 points set, drag and drop your Threshold layer to trash, you are going to see your normal image again, and also the 2 points.

5- Click the round black and white icon again and go to Curves. You are going to see 3 eye drop tools at the left side of the window. Click on the first one which is your black dropper. Click your "black point" with it right in the middle. You are going to see a change on your image.

6- Click the lower (third) dropper, which is the white dropper, click your "white point" with it right in the middle, and you are done.

The pictures below are in chronological order, i guess it is easier to follow this process looking at the pictures.

Have fun !!!
