Pure Black and White Action Set

You've been waiting for it, and here it is! Our Black and White action set.

We have not only included 13 different black and white actions, but we also have 3 customizers, so you can really take your black and whites in any direction you want.

Some actions will work best with certain images, while others are more universal. Our "flagship" b/w action is the BW Wonderbaby and we love this action. It is simple, clean and rich. There are brighter black and whites, and moodier ones, even ones with a "film grain" look. Try them out and see which will end up as your "signature."

Here are some examples of different actions and how they work on the same photo.

  1. I have been searching for the perfect B&W action. I just looked at these but can't really tell if they are what I'm looking for because I like to test them on a picture that has lots of contrast to clearly see the difference between the darks and lights. Do you have a place where I can see other images using these actions? Thanks!

  2. I've posted some on the fanpage under the BW examples. We'll get some more out. They are very smooth with contrast, and as you can see from these examples, they are good with highlights too.
