I appreciate this action since I have many beautiful photos of the forests of my city and I want them to look that old black. Thank you very much for this contribution and greetings from the south of the world.

It somehow does not really work for me :( All I get is dark blobs on an almost white pic. Do you know what the reason for this could be?

hmm, I'm not sure...is the layer flattened at the start?

Oh never mind any more. I just tried to test it again to tell you what photoshop tells me but it seems everything is working now o.O It seems photoshop was a bit bitchy yesterday. Thanks all the same for trying to help :huggle: It is really a nice action :D

Thank you much for this action! I used this to make mine pictures from the study trip to USA Northeast and it turned to be really great - the pictures became much more emotional and had a story to tell - definity better than the original! Thou few became too dark...

Great! ... would love to see.

If they are too dark try adjusting the exposure first then running the action.

Oh I see, thank you for the tip! I'm still learning the Photoshop for my architect study.

Wanted to add a second thank you, I use this action so much!

I am quite capable of taking monochrome photos, but sometimes they need some extra oomph and this action does the trick nicely every time ;)
