Meet ‘Clown Buachaill’ – my strangely named (by my son) male turtle. We have a female one too. Her name is ‘Clown Cailin’. Buachaill is Irish for Boy, Cailin is Irish for Girl, but that’s not what this post is about :)

For as long as I’ve seen it, the cross-processing effect in photography has really appealed to and interested me. And as with all things in photography, it’s usually possible to imitate film effects in Photoshop, and as my interest in digital post processing just increases all the time, I’ve been on the lookout for a good digital corss processing tutorial for Photoshop.

Well it seems I’ve found a good one here. The results are in this shot of my friendly turtle, and I’m quite happy with them. Feel free to comment here or on flickr.
