    Hello all
    I have been experimenting for a while now with using luminosity values as a way to not only convert color images into B&W but also tint/tone the images.
    Anyway I am quite happy with the results and would like to share them with you.
    These are a few samples

    If you like these I have created a Photoshop Action Set for them that you can download here http://www.billingham-photography.com/wallys_bw_action.zip

    The action can also create great B&W images as well that are not toned.

    beautiful images, I tried your action and I like it. It gives a lower key image then I usually get from my own conversions. Its definatly worth playing around with. Thanks alot for posting it.
