Create a basic cyanotype image using a gradient map

Recommended Posts

In response to a question in the "Questions" forum, I created a short video showing how I use the gradient map to create a cyanotype image. I thought it might be helpful to post a link to the video here in the "Tutorial" forum too (perhaps not everybody lurks in the various forums just waiting for a new post of some sort).

Great tutorial! Motivates me to start experimenting myself!

I also found this video very interesting because it shows how to add a border:

Thank you for these 2 tutorials, dhayton. I've added the gradient maps (including the touch of opacity reduction) to my collection. It is very useful to have such a collection, as one can easily add the color  to see the effect on the B&W image.
