The freebie for today is a set of 5 monochrome actions to give your photos a special look. Just open your photo in Photoshop, load the Monochrome actions set, select the one you want, click Play and you’re done. The original photo will not be lost, you will still have it intact on a separate layer.

The actions are compatible with Photoshop CS3 and above. They are free to use for both personal and commercial projects. Attribution is not necessary, but always highly appreciated.

      To install the actions unzip the pack and put the .atn file into the following folder ..\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Actions. Then open Photoshop and open the Actions palette, then click on the top right button on the palette, you should see a list with available action sets (among other things).
