  1. I absolutely love your photos! I was wondering what photo editing software you use, and how you use the b/w effect with a hint of color?

  2. Thank you so very much - that makes me very happy :-)

    I must say that I use absolutely every program available.. I always shoot in RAW and for the first editing I do I use Canon's own program "Digital Photo Professional". I find it really good for adjusting exposure, sharpness, color temperature and so on. For color adjusting and effects I use Photoshop. But I still need a lot of training in Photoshop and I only know how to use the most simple features.

    So here comes the trick..: I cheat a little :-) I'm sure there is a fancy-pancy way to keep just a hint of color in Photoshop, but I don't know how. So... I go to www.picnik.com, upload my photo, go to "create", click on "black and white" and then fade the effect around 15 %. Voilá! A wonderful b/w photo with a hint of color..

    I know.. It's cheating. But it does the trick :-)

    I hope that was helpful.

    Take care and thank you for your comment.


  3. Thank you, I found that very helpful! I will definately give it a go. Also, how do you cross process photos? Is photoshop the only program you can do that on, or is there a simpler way?

    Thanks for sharing your secrets :)
