Are you sure you're not mis-typing "O" for "0" or "I" for "1" or vice-versa?

Some of these keys can be a bugger to read properly.

Cathy, try the T-Max Pro preset for nice contrasty b&w for portraits.

The grain controls can be very useful in dealing with noise in some photos too - instead of using noise control, adding a little bit of soft grain can be more effective. The burn edges tool is good as well.

I tried the burn edge thingy and vignetting on my V2 ...I think I prefer that one.

I await the results with baited breath, especially as you couldn't even get your head round the product key. Tongue

silver efx is ace

rarely have to do anything in Photoshop if you're using it

just be careful with the structure slider - you get halos if you go mad with it

not really done much with the grain, so I'll give that a go - nice one Geraint Smile

Hey Ade - yes I remember you gave me the tip on the structure slider a while back. It's a shame as it's a great tool - the halos become quite apparent once you push the slider too far. Maybe it'll be sorted out in V2 (fingers crossed).

The grain can really accentuate the atmosphere in either high contrast or softly-lit portraits. Less is more though!

EDIT: Yesterday's upload ( "Harry" ) had a little bit of soft grain added.
