A few urban images tweaked in the Photoshop RAW import filter. These are part of a long hunt for a digital replacement for cross-processing film.
Not bad, although that red curb stripe is a little intense, no?

I like the red curb. It does kind of look like it was just drawn in with the brush tool, though.
I don't have the RAW import filter yet. What kind of changes are you making with it to get this kind of image?

I agree about the red curb shot, it appears to have gone all the way to max saturation. But I like the overall effect you're getting!

The three sliders I'm maxing out are shadows, saturation, and contrast. I'm not really sure what shadows does -- the effect on the histogram doesn't make any sense to me -- but that's where most of the effect is happening. The other two just push it over the edge. Which I've never been averse to.

Worth the 99 bucks?

That's hard to say definitively. On the one hand, I think it drastically improves the workflow of using raw files -- instead of having to convert them before hand, it's just file/open in Photoshop, and then you have all of the controls you need to fix white balance, adjust the exposure (measured in stops!), etc. Also, it includes the option to scale the image up slightly, using Adobe's latest and very clean resampling algorithms, which means that my G2 has just become a pretty good 6 megapixel camera. On the other hand, it'll be built into PS8, so it'll be "free" then.
