Quote: IMHO it very rarely works thinking this hasn't worked in colour I will try mono.

Absolutely agree.


Quote: unlike some I dont "see" in mono - but I do think in mono.

A good distinction, although it can blur at times. I think think mono, and sometimes can visualize how the picture will turn out, bit that's not necessarily 'seeing' in mono.

To some extent it's a matter of language, and for those starting out on mono, or wanting to explore it, suggesting they need to see in mono could be off-putting - unless they listen to Radio 3 regularly. Wink

Many, many moons ago, I used to do a bit of B&W printing. I have very recently taken the plunge digitally and I am still trying to see which method is best. I won't be going down the Silver Efex route just yet so I am currently using gradient map and channel mixer with some judicious burning and dodging. Is there any other method I should be testing out? Hadn't thought of using Photo Engine first so will have to give it a go.

just read the earlier parts of the thread Gaucho - we listed all the methods we could think of. There's loads, just a case of finding one you like

I used to be a huge fan of

Channel Mixer -> Curves -> Sharpen

to get the effect I was after, but now I can do most of that in Silver EFX, I've changed direction.

Thanks Ade. I'll have to look into Silver EFX but not until I've exhausted these other methods.

Isn't that this thread. I'm beginning to lose track. Tongue
