Nice tutorial, but I refuse to take part in such shenanigans.

Here is local Contrast tutorial, I will get the grey tutorial up soon, but this one is easier for me to type up.

Step One:
Open up RGB image

Step Two:
Go up to Filter->Sharpen->Unsharp Mask
Enter these settings:
Amount: 20%
Radius: 50
Threshold: 0
Click OK, thats it.

Here is an example of how it looks.

I'm sorry. You may not be able to easily see what has changed on my example, but just try it on you own then undo then redo it and you will see what is changed.

Your neutral tones worked very well for me in a photo I just converted to B&W. Thanks again, and congrats on the sticky .

If I hadn't taken the picture over the summer I'd totally enter it into this week's contest. . I'll post it in here when I'm finished.

the first one is better since the second one is washed out without any gain in detail.

You don't have to do this stuff every time, just when your picture needs some correction.

The layout isnt really different at all. I like CS2 alot more than 7 or even CS for that matter. Yes you can use CS2 to process your raw files with ACR(Adobe Camera RAW).

Oh, and I should have the noise reduction one done tonight.

Well, I have finally made some time to do my infamous noise reduction tutorial. For this tutorial you will either need to DL the trial for Noise Ninja from http://www.picturecode.com/nn_plugin.htm or, you can acquire it… (Cough Cough Torrents, or Limewire Cough Cough) I will not answer any questions regarding that portion of this tutorial

Step One: Open up RGB image. Go to the Layers Palette and select the Channels tab.



Step Two: Select the Red channel by clicking on tab. The image will become Black and White, this is normal.



Step Three: Go Up to Filter -> Picture Code -> Noise Ninja (If you do not see this then you must have installed Noise Ninja in the wrong place, go back and check out the directions on the Noise Ninja website.)



Step Four: Now the Noise Ninja dialog box should be open. After you click on The Noise Ninja thing and it is opening up it should say “Profiling Image” If it doesn’t, click on the “Profile Image” box.



Step Five: Now go back the Channels Palette and do the same thing that you just did with the Red Channel, then do the same thing you did on the other 2 channels to the Blue Channel.

Step Six: Back to the Channels Palette again, Click on the RGB (your image should be a color image again). The go back up to Noise Ninja and run Noise Ninja one more time to remove any other noise that may have been missed

Step Seven: The noise should now be pretty none existent and the image should look much better, but it may still lack a little but of sharpness. The key here, is that we do not want to just sharpen the noise in the picture. So we are going to use a technique that will only sharpen the edges of objects in the image. Go back to your layers palette by clicking on the Layers tab(which is next to the Channels Tab). Now duplicate the layer that you did the noise reduction on (will mostly likely be called “Background”). To duplicate the layer make sure what ever layer you want to duplicate is selected the press Ctrl+J.



Step Eight: Go up to Filter-> Other-> High Pass


Step Nine: Your image is going to look very strange, but that is okay. Right now we are going to find a setting that allows you to clearly see the outside of the edges of subject of the photo. There really isn’t any certain number that works with an image, but I have found that a setting of about 3 px- 9 px works best. But you can just slide the slider and see what looks good to you. When you find a setting you want, press OK.



Step Ten: Now that you have done that, now to make your image look normal again. Now you are going to change the blending mode of the image to Overlay.



Now if your image looks a little to over sharpened you can just turn down the opacity of the level till it is a setting that looks good to you

the trial version of noise ninja doesn't seem to come with a license, so it always imposes the grid. what am i missing?

You will either have to buy it then, or "acquire" it
