XEQUALS Black & White for PS

Working in black and white is an exercise in managing tone and contrast to reveal the unique relationship that exists between them.

With XEQUALS Black & White for Photoshop we bring them together with the same romance you’d get from the originals.

XEQUALS Black & White for Photoshop is part of the the The XEQUALS Platform – only available here.

Define Yourself

You can go through the motions of importing, editing, and slapping a preset on your images, while you try to sell them as your own—but if they don’t speak to the viewer and breathe life – they’re not alive.

Don’t Tell Me, Show Me

The proof is in the work. Below are some before/after samples of XEQUALS Black & White for Photoshop in action — just as you would use in your own work.

Rollei R3

This is a highly responsive look with just the right amount of contrast to make any image pop. As a film, R3 had some real attitude and range, which is the reason so many people love and obsess about this style. Make it your own and put it near the top of your editing approach.

Daguerreotype

As much as it is a specific photographic process, we’ve also captured the essence of the Daguerreotype here so you can experiment with a similar tonality and contrast in your own work.

High Contrast Pass

This is a team favorite. Dark, gritty, or minimalist, these descriptions all apply to the look you get with this one.
