RetroGrade: A single plug-in for use with Photoshop-compatible host applications. It will help you to recreate classic effects as if you were shooting with traditional black & white film. This filter offers a quick and easy way to convert your colour photos to a more traditional look with artistic quality! The most useful feature here is probably the RGB Optical Filter sliders which affect the colour response during greyscale conversion, similar to using coloured lens filters with B&W film.: for example, a red filter will lighten the red, magenta and yellow areas plus darken the green, blue and cyan in the photo. The optical sliders not only allow you to mix different combinations of red, green and blue, but also go beyond the usual limits and allow you to apply extreme values. This means you can simulate strong infra-red style B&W photos for greater impact, but also mix the green and blue channels at the same time for maximum control. Add to this the monochromatic film grain and you are able to create photos that have the look and feel of traditional media. This product is particularly effective on landscape photographs but also suitable for use with a variety of other subject matter too. Feature Overview ...
