Tinting a photo
Want a cool tint formula for a black and white? First, when you're in Camera Raw, go to the HSL/Grayscale tab and turn on the Convert to Grayscale checkbox.
Then, go to the next panel to the right (Split Toning) and use this formula:
- Highlights: Hue=37, Saturation=24
- Shadows: Hue=40, Saturation=26
Go ahead and try it. It works especially well on urban still life photos.
I can't explain it, but it just looks cool.
