X-CHROME brings the power of a black & white darkroom into your Lightroom workflow
The truth is, film emulation isn't enough. The real power of the black and white darkroom is in the combination of three key ingredients:
- The Film.
- The Chemical Developer.
- The Toner & Paper Type.
It's only by using all three of these tools together that the masters of black and white were able to create legendary photos.
And it's exactly how you'll get to develop images in X-CHROME.
Film + Developer + Toners & Papers
X-CHROME includes film emulations, chemical developer emulations, toner emulations & paper emulations. And they all work together to give you total control over the way you develop your black and white photos.
Each group of emulations is designed to interact intelligently with the other. So, for instance, the grain structure for Kodak TRI-X 400 changes when you use Rodinal vs XTOL for development, just as it would in real life.
Here's what's inside:
- Polaroid Type 55 // push // pull
- Fuji Neopan Acros 100 // push
- Kodak TRI-X 400
- Kodak TRI-X 800
- Kodak TRI-X 1600

Powered by PureTone RAW Camera Profiles
X-CHROME also uses something new I've cooked up... I'm calling it PureTone RAW Camera Profiles. These profiles give you access to the full, linear representation of your camera's dynamic range. This means you get purer, smoother tonal representations and black and and whites that feel more organic (like real film).
Plus, more goodies...
You'll also get other goodies, like my NATE B+W Film Toolkit, which includes other specialized black and white tools that don't fall into the main sets. For instance, it includes my new "contrast filter" calibrations, including:
- Red - 25a filter
- Orange - YA3 filter
- Yellow - K2 filter
