    This is a sort of nice effect, any one got an idea how I could make a photo into that on photoshop?



    If you have a look at the bottom of this page, the image looks different - i want to end up with this.

    Here's what I used for www.rfsmusic.com

    This is from thewebmachine.com, but their stupid website doesn't let you copy/paste links.
    Here's a quick way to turn your images into bitmaps.


    Open up the image you want to work with and head over to the Layers palette. At the bottom click the Create New Fill- or Adjustment layer-button and pick Threshold... from the menu.

    Look at your image and you can se that it turned black and white. Move the slider until you are satisfied with the shading of the image and then hit OK.

    Blendmode: Screen

    Blendmode: Multiply


    To add color to the image go back to the Create New Fill- or Adjustment layer-button and choose Solid Color... Pick a color that you like and hit OK. Go to the top of the Layers palette and change the blendmode of this layer to either Screen or Multiply. Screen will give you a white and color image and Multiply will give you a black and color image.


    To switch positions the colors in your image add another Adjustment layer, Invert. Place this layer between the Threshold layer and the Color Fill layer.

    I'd also add that the image appears differently on the website (from the stand-alone file) as it's been saved as a transparent gif.

    there are many ways of doing this. A couple of them are:

    Gradient Map - use "Image - Adjust - Gradient Map" and set the colors of your gradient to white and whatever other color you want.... then adjust their slider positions to alter the contrast of the gradient.

    Blending Mode - add a couple of layers to your document, above the layer of your photo. Fill the lower one black and change the blending mode (in the layer control toolbar) to "Contrast"... in the upper layer, fill it the color you want to use for your gradient and change the layer blending mode to "Color". This one will take a bit longer, but what's cool is you can reuse it for multiple photos. Just add them in their own layers, and you can just turn off layers and export your image and create hundreds of images at once!
