Been 'experimenting' with black and white or greyscale photos. Its amazing how changing your picture to B & W focuses on the subject more and creates a totally different mood whatever the era you are using (just imagine the donkey isnt there!);



anyone wanna try a fave piccy but in greyscale?

Now you're asking

1 is Van Dyke Browning

2 is Sepia Ageing

Both are standard "actions" in Photoshop CS involving a set of automated adjustments - which version Photoshop do you have? You'll find them under the "actions" tab.
