A black and white is a black and white, right? I mean, really. It’s two colors. Nope! Actually, there are as many ways to create a black and white image as there are ways to edit a color image, almost. Black and whites can be crisp and contrasty. They can be creamy and soft. They can be dreamy and ethereal or gritty and moody.
We try to have a sampling of lots of different kinds so that you can fit the mood of your image perfectly.

This is our flagship BW. It is clean and crisp. It is never muddy or dull. It is a good go-to for most black and white needs.
2-3. BW Wonderbaby+Warming and BW Wonderbaby+Warmingx2–
The Wonderbaby action plus a warming filter. It give the images a cozy feeling.

A dreamy, ethereal black and white.

12. Moody Baby–
A deeper, darker BW. It also is unlikely to blow whites

14-15. Bright Baby BW with Optional Contrast Increase–
This is a VERY bright BW. It doesn’t work on every image. But for the ones it does, it is magic.
16-17. BW Customizer Brighten and Darken–
Do you want to take your black and white image to a work of art? THESE are the answers. Brighten the skin tones or areas of interest in the image. Paint it right on the black mask. Then run the darkening one and paint in facial features, shadows, details, to really bring them out. Paint around the edges of the image to bring down the brightness and draw the eye to your subject.
