Creating a High-Contrast Portrait Look in Photoshop CS6
Adapted from The Adobe Photoshop CS6 Book for Digital Photographers (Peachpit Press )

The super-high-contrast, desaturated look is incredibly popular right now, and while there are a number of plug-ins that can give you this look, I wanted to provide this version, which I learned from German retoucher Calvin Hollywood, who shared this technique during a stint as my special guest blogger at my daily blog. The great thing about his version is: (1) you can write an action for it and apply it with one click, and (2) you don’t need to buy a third-party plug-in to get this look. My thanks to Calvin for sharing this technique with me, and now you.
