The Plugin SitePhotoshop plugin for B/W conversion : The Plugin Site released B/W Styler for Windows, which is another product in the PhotoWiz series. B/W Styler is a Photoshop plugin for B/W conversion, creating traditional B/W effects and styling B/W photos. B/W Styler works in dozens of graphics applications including Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop Elements, Photo-Paint, Photo Plus, IrfanView and PhotoImpact. It supports 8bit and 16bit RGB images. B/W Styler simulates the whole work flow of B/W 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 B/W photography, but even goes beyond that.

Starting with a color photo B/W Styler lets you produce stunning B/W images that are not possible with B/W film. B/W Styler uses the whole contrast range of color photos to achieve dramatic B/W images. B/W Styler transforms dull color photos into interesting B/W pictures. Additionally you can enrich the B/W 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 - From amateurs to advanced users
B/W Styler contains modes for inexperienced, intermediate and advanced users. All modes of B/W Styler are connected and work together, so you can gradually add more effects and style your B/W image by switching from one mode to the other. As a start Photographer's Mode lets you choose between a lot of presets in one compact dialog, e.g. B/W 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 of which concentrates only on one aspect. Additionally there are five special effect modes for doing special B/W conversions, selective B/W, split color, vignette blur and mist effects.

B/W Quick Mode & B/W Export mode
More advanced users can also use the B/W Quick Mode for doing sophisticated B/W conversions with the help of 16 different controls. Finally, you can fine-tune your image in Expert Mode with the help of dozens of effect features, more than one hundred controls and almost two hundred local presets.

B/W tools & B/W conversion methods
B/W Styler offers the whole range of B/W tools and related effects in a single plugin. So you don't need to waste your time switching between different filters all the time. B/W Styler provides six different techniques for B/W conversion while most other tools offer only one or two. One of these B/W conversion methods (Split B/W) is not available with any other tool.

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

B/W Styler - Masking features at an affordable price
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 people 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. It offers more features and possibilities than other tools in the same price range and beyond.

B/W Styler plugin - Availability & System Requirements
B/W Styler is available for Windows. A Macintosh version is planned for next year. B/W Styler sells at $49.95 (Regular License) or $29.95 (Academic/Educational License). It can be purchased at the website of The Plugin Site. A demo version can be downloaded at the same website.
