B/W Styler

B/W Styler


B/W Styler is a Photoshop Plug-in for black-and-white conversion, creating traditional black-and-white effects and styling black-and-white photos. B/W Styler works in dozens of graphics applications including Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop Elements, PhotoPlus, Photo-Paint, IrfanView and PhotoImpact under Windows. It supports 8-bit and 16-bit RGB images.

B/W Styler simulates the whole workflow of black-and-white photography from shooting a photo to processing it in the lab and framing the end result. It recreates the look of films, lens filters, lab effects, and photo papers that are popular in traditional black-and-white photography, but it goes beyond that.

Starting with a color photo, B/W Styler enables the user to produce stunning black-and-white images that are not possible with black-and-white film. B/W Styler uses the whole contrast range of color photos to achieve dramatic black-and-white images. B/W Styler can transform dull color photos into interesting black-and-white pictures. Additionally the user can enrich the black-and-white images by colorizing them, manipulating brightness and contrast, masking certain image areas, adding soft focus and glow effects, simulating film grain, adding special effects, and framing the image.

B/W Styler contains modes for inexperienced, intermediate, and advanced users. All modes of B/W Styler are connected and work together, so the user can gradually add more effects and style a black-and-white image by switching from one mode to another.

As a start photographer's mode allows the user to choose between a lot of presets in one compact dialog (e.g. black-and-white film type, ISO rating, lens filters, lab-development strategy, paper type, color toner, special lab effects, and more). These effects can then be adjusted in ten simple modes; each concentrating on only one aspect. Additionally there are five special effect modes for doing special black-and-white conversions, selective black and white, split color, vignette blur, and mist effects.

More advanced users can also use the b/w quick mode for doing sophisticated black-and-white conversions with the help of 16 different controls. Finally, fine-tune images in expert mode with the help of dozens of effect features, more than one hundred controls, and almost two hundred local presets.

B/W Styler offers the whole range of black-and-white image tools and related effects in a single Plug-in, eliminating the need to switch between different filters. B/W Styler provides six different techniques for black-and-white conversion while most other tools offer only one or two. One of these black-and-white conversion methods (split b/w) is not available with any product.

B/W Styler uses the color contrast of photos effectively to achieve more distinctive black-and-white photos. Other tools try to simulate the look of black-and-white films with only a few color sliders, whereas B/W Styler gives detailed control over the whole color spectrum. Additionally, when switching a 24-bit color image to 16-bit per channel before running B/W Styler, it will produce higher quality black-and-white conversions, which will be retained even after switching back to 8-bit per channel.

Unlike other tools B/W Styler also supplies a wide range of masking features for selectively addressing certain parts of an image. It features three different types of modes for beginners, advanced users, and experts, so users can become more experienced without the need to switch to another tool. Best of all, B/W Styler is available at an affordable price, and offers more features and possibilities than other tools in the same price range.
