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 independently by many different photographers often by mistake in the days of C-22 and E-4.

What is cross processing?
Cross processing refers to developing a film using a development process that was not intended for it. It usually means developing slide film using a print developing process or vice-versa.

The other addition to the E-P2 is the i-Enhance picture mode. According to Olympus US, this mode 'analyses the colors and brightness [and] mimics what the naked eye sees.

~ Art Filter
The new Diorama Art Filter applies a tilt-and-shift effect which blurs much of the image, leaving a sharp strip in the middle. This in turn delivers the miniaturisation effect much-loved by owners of exotic tilt / shift lenses.

The ~ art filter offers an unexpected look to images and videos by changing the color and contrast of subjects on the fly. Using this mode can result in surreal other-worldly images.

The best cross processing apps are ones that apply the filter as a new layer in Photoshop as a mask. The reason being that it then enables the editor to choose the intensity anytime throughout the editing process as well as dedicate where to filter.

High pass filters, cross processing, desaturation, vignettes, fish eye lenses, and the vast panoply of zany, wacky and far out things you can do to your shots all have their place.

I push it two stops and cross process, I get incredibly grainy stuff that, properly used, is very effective. I used to shoot a lot of Scotchchrome 1000, but it was discontinued. This is one of the only high-grain color films left.

Like it or not post processing is part of the digital photo world. By the way, post processing was part of the game when film was king too. Dodge and burn, cropping, cross processing etc.

Lomographic cameras use film, which is often manipulated to create strange color casts (cross processing slide film with negative chemicals is one technique, using expired film is another).

You could go the whole hog and take a toy film camera such as a Holga or a Lomo. Their cheap crappy lenses create a unique effect and you can also mess with multiple exposures by not winding the film on a full frame or even cross process your film on your return.

PhotoToaster Jr allows to choose from 14 different effects and different white balance presets, and add vignetting and frames. All of the filters and effects also allow you to fine tune them to your liking by adjusting saturation, sharpness, color filters, cross processing, and more.

You can choose to convert images into black and white or do all kinds of cross processing. But most importantly this option also allows for Metadata implementation to the entire batch. Using this option you can add keywords to all images from a shoot and even add your copyright notice.
