    I'm really interested in this look, especially after seeing the movie "300".

    I am very familiar with Photoshop, but neither me nor my designer friend can figure this out.
     
  2. I'm interested as well! I had the same thought after watching "300"... how would I go about getting that "bronze" look using Photoshop.
     
  3. I heard of a software program today used by the film industry and recently offerred to photographers. I will look for the info again and list it here. I am not certain this was a feature but based on the price of the software and large number of effects offerred I would bet it might.

    Gritty Photo Effect
    Use a channels adjustment, noise filter, and the Apply Image command to create a dramatic, gritty look for your photos.
