• Alien Skin Exposure to simulate popular film emulsions, add grain and also convert to B&W.
The Steinmuellers are also offering a Book Bundle of their eBooks The Art of RAW Conversion, The Art of Digital Fine Art Printing and Using Photoshop Layers for Photography for the modest price of $69.95 until Jan. 15, 2007 at http://www.outbackphoto.com/booklets/dop3901/DOP3901.html.
