Spice up your Black & White conversions!
The BW routine features a built-in smart contrast enhancement, that overcomes the issue of flat-looking conversions. A Boost option is available when you need a bit of extra punch and a more 3D look.
Apply the digital equivalent of colored filters (Yellow, Orange, Red, Green, Blue) that Black & White photographers use to mount on camera lenses to exploit the scene contrast: landscapes, portraits, skies, etc.
Vitamin BW provides a bouquet of toning renderings: besides the default Neutral, you can choose between Warm, Cool or Mixed - an interesting effect which is Warm in the highlights and Cool in the Shadows.
In order to give you total customization control, Vitamin BW output is split in layers: you can just flatten them if the default result satisfies you, or paint layer masks to precisely target the image to your taste.
All features explained with examples by author Davide Barranca.
