Xpro – a free Photoshop Action for that cross-processing look

As you may already know, I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with cross-processing film in the past – I love how the colours shift in such surprising ways and that the slightest difference in film can give you completely different results – for example Fujifilm Sensia 100 looks red, whereas Fujifilm Sensia 400 looks blue/green.

In tribute to these crazy colours (plus the blown-out highlights, contrasty shadows and intensified grain that you also get with cross-processing) I have created a Photoshop action to replicate the look!

Run the Action and it will create seven different Adjustment Layers in a variety of colourways – simply switch on the one you like the look of! (The ‘grain/noise’ layer acn be switched off too if you prefer).

      Some work better than others (I like the blue one best), and it all depends on the original photo – all good fun though! :)
