i love takeing images and making them B&W on PS
I am addicted to 1800's glass plate photography.
Along with sepia toning:
i know what sepia looks like but what does Sepia mean? where did it come from?
how is sepia pronounced?
Sepia tone is a type of monochrome photographic image in which the picture appears in shades of brown as opposed to greyscale as in a black-and-white image. It was originally produced by adding a pigment made from the Sepia cuttlefish to the positive print of a photograph taken with any number of negative processes. The chemical process involved converts any remaining metallic silver to a sulphide which is much more resistant to breakdown over time. This is why many "old time" photographs are sepia toned—those are the ones that have survived until today
how are you converting to b&w? image->mode-> grayscale?
or are you adding channel mixeradjument layers, etc
No, I slept at a holiday inn last night and felt compelled to write a fake wiki.
some people also just use Desaturate.
i see which channels i like in the layers > channel thing, then i use channel mixer to make that/those more prominent
i used to do that but someone on here recommended i use channel mixer for better results
I'm addicted to B+W =)
no tri x no care
tutorial on making B&W pictures that look better than simply "Desaturate"
