MONOCHROME PICTURE CONTROL
Get the start file from the disc or download it, and try tweaking tones for yourself
Desaturate the photo
Set the adjustment palette’s dropdown menu to Latest Picture Control. Change the captured Standard Picture Control to Monochrome. This creates a greyscale conversion. You can fine-tune the sliders in the Picture Control adjustments panel to produce a better black-and-white print.
Adjust filter effect
By setting the Filter Effect dropdown menu to a different colour you can lighten or darken tones in the image based on their original colour. If you choose Red, for example, it will darken the tones of blues and greens. This helps the flowers and the clouds stand out more in contrast.
To change the mood of the monochrome Picture Control setting you can also add washes of colour, courtesy of the Toning pull-down menu. A Sepia setting helps add a vintage look to our photo. You can produce a more subtle sepia wash by dropping the Toning Saturation slider down to 2.
