    Photoshop CS6 Tutorial

  • GOOD AND BAD

     Photoshop offers both destructive and non- destructive techniques to turn your images into

    black and White.

  • DESTRUCTIVE METHODS

     Destructive methods are the ones that can’t be re-adjusted afterwards.

     Once you have made the conversion, the only way to change it is

    to undo the conversion and start over.

  • NON-DESTRUCTIVE METHOD

     Use Photoshop adjustment layers.

     The changes you make to your own photo are

    stored in the layer and the original photo remains

    unchanged underneath.

  • ORIGINAL COLOR IMAGE

  • ADD THE CHANNEL MIXER TO YOUR LAYER

    1.  In your layers palette select the circle that is half white and half black.

    2.  Select Channel Mixer from the drop down menu.

  • Select Monochromatic

  • By default, Photoshop combined 40% of the Red channel, 40% of

    the Green channel and 20% of the Blue

    channel to create the initial black and white version of the image.

  • To increase or decrease the percentage of a

    specific color drag the slider to the right or left.

  • 100% RULE

     When editing your channel mixer colors you want the total to equal 100%. If it goes

    over 100% images will begin to look over

    exposed.

    Over 100%

  • HISTOGRAM

     It is also good to leave your Histogram open (Window > Histogram) because if you see spikes on

    the right edge of the panel then you know you are

    losing image detail.

  • FINAL IMAGE

  • PLACE IMAGE IN DROPBOX
