BLACK IS ALSO A COLOUR
CORRECT OR SIMPLY GET RID OF THEM AND TURN YOUR PICTURE INTO A PERFECT BLACK/WHITE IMAGE WITH PHOTOSHOP.
There is a great debate about colour in photographs. Some swear by monochrome, others feel a picture isn’t a picture if it is not in rainbow hues. Let’s leave the discussion to the artists and see how we can improve or change the colours in our photographs. We need to sometimes edit colours to ensure a proper balance or for special effects. We can also drain the image of all tints, leaving it in stark black and white. Carrying out these processes in the era of films called for professional skills, but with the advent of digital cameras, they are not difficult.
Most cameras, even the point-andshoots, will allow you to choose monochrome, standard colour or vivid colour modes when you shoot. And with the LCD panels showing you the end result even before you have clicked the photos, you know pretty well how your efforts will turn out. Even then, you may sometimes need to touch up the colour palette. Or you may realise that the image is stronger in monochrome or conversely, in more saturated colours. It is then that you could take the help of a software to carry out the changes. Here are some simple ways in whch you can play with the colours of your photograph using Adobe Photoshop.
