Rich black & white


I have been looking for a retoucher that can convert 14 images to rich black and white, but with no luck. Does anyone know of a good tutorial for this? I need to have these done by TOMORROW!!!

One of Chase Jarvis' retouchers posted a blog about how does all their black and whites. There's not a definite formula for it, but he goes over his methodology.
Here's the link.

You could download a trial version of Silver Efex Pro, and give it a try. Although it can be done in Photoshop, but it takes longer.

Take a look at these B&W and Duotone actions...

There are many looks....don't know what you visualize by rich look. Do you mean high contrast?
