Free Cross Processing Photoshop Action Imitates Historic Cross Processing Results
Cross processing (sometimes abbreviated to Xpro) is the deliberate processing of photographic film in a chemical solution intended for a different type of film. The effect was discovered by many different photographers often by mistake in the days of C-22 and E-4.
Unnatural colors and high contrast characterize color cross processed photographs. Many factors determine the outcome of cross processing. As a result, cross processed photos differ from case to case. These include the make and type of the film used, the amount of light exposed onto the film and the chemical used to develop. Digital filters such as our free cross processing Photoshop action produce similar effects without the chemical mess.
