A New Beginning

Combination of Presets

Once again Steve Rich created a workflow that peaked my interest. I thought I would give it a try on a totally different type of image than he used. This is a single shot (not bracketed) which I ran through my normal edits before applying his workflow in OnOne Perfect Effects 4.

Before SOOC




I used the following part of  Steve Rich‘s Workflow.

Five presets used from OnOne Perfect Effects 4.

Black and White Green Filter @ 50%
Vintage Postcard @ 35%
Rice Paper Vignette @ 60%
Omaha Beach @ 20%
Rich Glow @ 50%

I added a white layer mask and adjusted the Opacity in different areas while I used a black brush to remove some of the effects of the presets from the sheep.

Don’t forget to…

1. Duplicate image and do your normal edits.

2. SAVE your work several times during your editing.

3. Creeate a composite layer ~  CMD + option + shift + E on a Mac or CTL + ALT + shift + E on a PC.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
