CREATING BLACK AND
WHITE IMAGES IN
Photoshop CS6 Tutorial
GOOD AND BAD
Photoshop offers both destructive and non-
destructive techniques to turn your images into
black and White.
Destructive methods are the ones that can’t be re-adjusted
Once you have made the conversion, the only way to change it is
to undo the conversion and start over.
Use Photoshop adjustment layers.
The changes you make to your own photo are
stored in the layer and the original photo remains
ORIGINAL COLOR IMAGE
ADD THE CHANNEL MIXER
TO YOUR LAYER
1. In your layers palette
select the circle that is
half white and half
2. Select Channel Mixer
from the drop down
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.
When editing your channel mixer colors
you want the total to equal 100%. If it goes
over 100% images will begin to look over
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.
