    Lightbulb A new way make a photo black & white

    Hi Everyone ...

    I found a new way to convert an image to B&W so though that I would share it with you .... its very quick, very easy and very flexible:

    1. Open up your image

    2. Create a new layer above the image (Layer>New>Layer) and change its blend mode to Colour.

    3. Change your foreground colour to White and do Edit>Fill Layer and choose foreground colour.

    Now for the clever bit ...

    4. Go the the Layers Palette and Click on your image layer and create a Hue & Saturation Layer above it. (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue & Saturation) ... then just play around with the colour control until you get a Black & White Effect that you like

    See I told you it was quick, easy & flexible !! .. so play around with it and most of all do remember to experiment and enjoy

    Hi Shar ...

    You can get some really interesting effects ... and the colour shift can really make a B&W image pop

    Finally got around to trying this out. Quick and easy. I also tried it using a Levels Adjustment layer above the photo. That worked well, too.
