TrueGrain

I just bought TrueGrain. The website is saying the following about the product: TrueGrain is a pro-grade tool for accurately recapturing the aesthetics of black and white film with digital photography. My first go with the software below.

  1. I do all my conversions in ACR. The above portrait would benefit from lightening oranges to make the subject’s skin lighter.

      Yes Ron, I do realize the shot (flat RAW) could need some extra treatment (the orange skin). But in this case I was just quickly testing the software with a random flat RAW of my favorite model:)
