    Brilliant tip. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for the tutorial!!! This Photoshop technique will come in very handy!

  3. With the layer 1 set to soft light my Black and White layer doesn’t turn the image monochrome. If I turn layer 1 to normal blend then it will change to Black and White. Any suggestions, Thanks John

  4. Can this tutorial be used in PS CS 3?
