B&W Film Emulations

There are many ways to convert your photos to B&W and these actions simplify the process for you. The action is split into four parts: film emulation, contrast effects, color filter, and film grain. To use these actions, you would run the film emulations first to simulate the B&W films, pick the one you like, then run the next actions to render film contrast effects, simulate color filters, and apply real film grain. Because these actions use snapshot prerendering, you can switch between the effects without playing another action – this saves you a lot of time!


Examples
