  • 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?

            I am working on a portrait and after really cleaning it up, and color correcting it to my satisfaction (and hopefully the customers), the customer tells me he want a nice Black & White for his final. Now that is not always so easy to accomplish after the fact. The subjects were all wearing WHITE...

            More control when making black & white conversions
            by Ishpho
            So i put together a short tutorial pretty much teaching people how to gain even more control when converting an image to black and white.
            Allowing a chance for more control of shadows, highlights and midtones.
            Hope you like

            Black Magic & Photoshop
            by brockusn
            I am a long time user of Photoshop, but there are some things that I can't do well with the program. I have tried BlackMagic to colorize b&w photos, but when viewed in Photoshop for final touch-up, the images have a regular dot pattern the looks like colored pixels scattered over the intersects...
