BLACK AND WHITE
Some pictures just look good in black and white. Lack of colour creates a mood and imparts a sense of timelessness to a picture. It may also be easier to focus on a story if there are no distracting colours around. To covert your picture: Open your image in Photoshop. Go to Image and then Adjustments in the pulldown menu. There are two ways forward from there.
Desaturate: If you choose the Desaturate option in Adjustments, the computer will automatic turn a colour image into a B/W picture .
Black & White: If you choose this option, you have the freedom to control the tones to your preference.
