Photoshop CS5 – Grunge Me BW with Topaz Adjust 4 (Gritty Grunge Part 3)

grungemebw0

This is the third in my series of downloadable presets for Topaz Adjust 4 to create an easy gritty grunge effect.  This preset goes even further … into full black and white.

This preset is called Grunge Me BW by Photoframd ( use Save Link as…) does a complete black-and-white conversion in addition to pushing the highlights and shadows even further.  Just download this preset, save it and import it into Topaz Adjust 4.  (NOTE for Mac users, if this file does not work, please try downloading this Zip file.)

In creating this preset, I found that it even created a more contrasty conversion than Photoshop CS5’s dedicated Black & White Filter.  Here are some more examples.
