... Hi all, I tried cross processing today for the first time using curves in Photoshop.

Please, please, please can you take a moment to have a look at these:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/36328/thumb/558119.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/36328/thumb/558119.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' and ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/36328/thumb/558120.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/36328/thumb/558120.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

and leave comments. I'm really happy with them, but of course I value any and all feedback.

Cheers,

Iain ;-)

Cross processing is a film processing term. It most often refers to processing c-41 color negatives in e-6 chemistry (slide chemistry).

I thought the cross-processing look was supposed to emphasize the greens/blues and make it look acidy. These look overly red/orange.

None the less, nice effect. I like the borders you did. Slick.

Edit: I guess the background is a brick wall... =)

I thought it was suppose to emphasize the yellow peachy tones in the skin - ah well!

The background is a brick wall, this was shot outside.

Your's looks too red -remember that the original film cross processing was a chemical 'error' and the images were more green/yellow than 'normal'

CS3 has a cross process pre-set in the Curves dialog box. I like it, but many do not.

I like the preset one in CS3, never did like what I could do by myself.

If you're the artist then do what YOU like. If you're trying to sell your work then you can do what you like and wait for the customers to find you, or you'll often (usually) have to appeal to lowest common denominator.

Or the opposite, when you take your slide film to a one-hour photo developer who only has C-41 equipment. The tutorial in the earlier link shows how to imitate both versions.

Most of the cross processing I have done was E6 to C41 or slide to negative film. I started doing this in 1983. When doing the reverse the emulsion is very important and you much check the emulsion number to be sure of the film consistence. Here is a sample of E6 to C41...You can do the opposite using an 81B warming filter and rating your 100 iso film at 32 iso to get that old technicolor film look.
