In this episode of The Complete Picture (Toning Black and White Photographs in Lightroom 4 ), Julieanne explains the best way to add a color tone to an image using the Split Tone and Tone Curve panels as well as demonstrates how to save presets to increase your productivity.
Single Color Toning using the Split Tone panel. Examples include the Original Auto B/W Mix, Antique, Blue, Mustard, Sepia Midtones, Sepia Shadows, Blue, Cyan, Green, Magenta, Orange, Purple, Red, and Yellow presets.
Although this video was recorded in Lightroom, the same techniques are available in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6. Click to download the Toning presets for Lightroom 4 (JKost_Toning.zip) and Photoshop CS6 (PS_JKost Toning.zip).
Note: here is an updated version of the Toning Presets for Lightroom 4 (Windows versions)JKostToningWin. I had use and asterisk in the file names which has now been changed to “0_” to keep the “reset” presets at the top of the list.
Color Toning using the Split Tone and Tone Curve panels. Examples include the Original Auto B/W Mix, Coffee Stain, Cyan/Yellow, Forest Horror, Orange/Yellow, Red/Cyan, Warm Strong, Warm Medium, Warm Subtle, Stark Winter, Warm Chocolate, and Weathered Marble presets.
To install: download and unzip the presets for Lightroom 4 or Photoshop CS6 (above) and place them in the following location:
• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw / Settings
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings
If you are on a Mac running Lion, the Library menu is hidden by default. To reveal it, hold the option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.
Note: The preset names differ slightly for each product as ACR does not support folders in the Presets tab and I wanted similar presets grouped together.
