      Hi Donald, glad you enjoyed the tutorial 🙂 I’ve just made the action set downloadable, simply click the text under the video. Let me know if you have any troubles, thanks!

  • While this was interesting and some information was new to me you didn’t really cover how you strive to create your look. What is it you want to see, and not see, in the picture? I know you usually shoot B&W during the shoot but if you had not and wanted to convert a shot later what would you be striving to accomplish and how would you go about doing it?

      Hi Michael, this tutorial was just to show you all the different ways you can look at black and white 🙂 all the other retouching tutorials have how I achieve my look, this is just different ways you could achieve black and white. With every photo I’m trying to catch as much detail in the RAW file, regardless if it is b&w or colour.

  • Hi Peter, thanks there is a lot of information in that tutorial. I didn’t understand the gradient map. Why didn’t it make left had side dark and right hand side much lighter ? I couldn’t make out the blending mode etc for that layer. Thanks Murray

  • Hey there! I had a quick question. When I downloaded the new action set, for some reason it’s not working on my photoshop. It says, “the command ‘play’ is not available.” And also, “the command ‘set’ is not available.” Do you by any chance know what could be the issue? Thanks again for releasing a new action! I just wish I could get it to work on my machine lol
