    Hi,

    I would love to hear your comments on this photo. It was processed with "virtualPhotographer", a free Photoshop plug-in a friend and I created.

    Below it is the before and after in a smaller size.

    This effect is a combination of things. There are some changes in contrast, brightness, B/W conversion, some blending of 2 layers and tinting. This is all achieved in one click.

    If you wish to try virtualPhotographer out for yourself. You can download it from
    http://www.optikvervelabs.com
    It is totally free and fully functional. Currently it is for the PC only.

    Yes it should work OK in PS 5.5 as it has been tested in PS 5.0 LE.
    It should work in most PS plug-in compatible apps. I have tested it in PS CS, PS 7, PS 5 LE, Elements 2, PSP 8, PhotoBrush, Corel PhotoPaint, MGI PhotoSuite, Canvas 7

    I don't have the original image here with me, but I can post it over the weekend.

    Hey, welcome to the forum. This is a great first picture. The mood, lighting, and colors work really well.

    Thanks for all the great feedback. It is good to feel welcome.

    I should mention that the lighthouse photo used the Bronzed preset which is an external settings file (.vph) also available from the website (Set 1)

    Here is another sample image processed with virtualPhotographer. This time the High Key preset was applied.

    Comments?

    After downloading, double click the virtualPhotographer.exe file. This will unzip the files to your machine. Now drag and drop the optikVerveLabs folder into the plug-in folder in Photoshop. The path should be something like:
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins

    It will vary based on application etc. but this should get you close.

    Alternatively, browse to the plug-ins folder from within the dialog during unzipping.

    If you have any questions you can email me at contactus@optikvervelabs.com.
