It somehow does not really work for me :( All I get is dark blobs on an almost white pic. Do you know what the reason for this could be?

Oh never mind any more. I just tried to test it again to tell you what photoshop tells me but it seems everything is working now o.O It seems photoshop was a bit bitchy yesterday. Thanks all the same for trying to help :huggle: It is really a nice action :D

Thank you much for this action! I used this to make mine pictures from the study trip to USA Northeast and it turned to be really great - the pictures became much more emotional and had a story to tell - definity better than the original! Thou few became too dark...

Great! ... would love to see.

If they are too dark try adjusting the exposure first then running the action.

Wanted to add a second thank you, I use this action so much!

I am quite capable of taking monochrome photos, but sometimes they need some extra oomph and this action does the trick nicely every time ;)

thanks! I'm still trying to figure out black and white photography (even when taking pics in black and white) they don't always turn out like I wish they did. Till then I am forever grateful to my fellow deviants who take the time to share their wonderful work with all of us. thank you!

Looks beautiful - and it all seems to work perfectly, but I haven't been able to get any results that are similar to your samples yet ... I think this needs a certain type of photo to make it work without just turning everything super dark

still get's a :+fav: from me though, I think my problem is more with the raw photos that I have been trying it with rather than this .ATN ... you did a good job putting this together, and it runs better and faster than most that I've tried from dA ... nice job :slyfart:
