A preset that goes dark in black and white

Written by on March 12, 2009 in Presets - 14 Comments

It has been some time now since I published a new preset. I’m sorry about that but I’ve been totally filled up with work and planning. I felt I just had to give you a new preset before the week end. This preset preset is called PH Dark & Light BW. I think it works great on some of my holiday photos. They tend to look more like an old postcard when I apply this preset. Enjoy.Preset in action

    Playing with this preset, I noticed that it’s beautiful with water shots! It makes the water look like mercury.

    love this preset! but i try too replicate it on my own to get better on editing,but i cant seem to get it right, this effect seems to have a tint,that i cant get, how do you do this?

    Hi Alea,
    This type of tint effect is made using the “Split Toning” adjustment panel.
    If you apply the preset and look at that panel, you’ll see that it has a color (Hue) and saturation (the amount of that color) set for the highlights (See image below)
    Slit Toning
    Thanks, Pierre
