Quote: This method works for me in Lightroom though I should imagine it works in PS also, its simple, intuitive and doesnt involve buying expensive plugins.
Thanks for that Stu; I will give it a go!

this action nick... .
do you end up with 3 mono layers, one for each channel, 2 of them masked out with the bottom one showing fully?
that'd be pretty cool
you could then just use a light brush on their masks to draw in bits you'd like to be "different"

Looks interesting Nick - I'd love a bit more detail too.
You got it Ade took ages to get right tho
yeah I bet - looks like a right faff creating those new documents and copying layers and all that!

eer took me ages get right, - Takes 10 seconds to run. I think I will keep hold of it for now
....must be crap then, if it was any good you'd want to share it
I could always do a DVD and sell it through the web site
lol - good luck with that
Hasn't keith done a tutorial on Northscape too?
So lets list the various methods then...
Hue Saturation - saturation=0
Black And White layer - CS3 and above
Nik Silver EFX
(various other external filter packages - e.g. virtual photographer)
You forgot LAB Ade
nice one - any more?
No thats about it, tho there are countless combinations there off and variations on a theme e.g Rob Carr method is a very sophisticated variant of LAB processing (sometimes use for portraints).
There isnt much in terms of mono processing I havent tried.
Did you say Greyscale (tho how that differs from desataturation I don't know - probably just uses luminoscity values).
There was one .. Calculations (I sometimes thro one of those into the soup for good measure)

Yes - and it's detailed and clear.
It's not an approach I've tried, but for some shots it might be worth a try. I'd be interested to try this approach against a SFEX, though to be a fair comparison you'd need to be quite practiced at it first.
