Content Topic: how to make an image black and white in photoshop. I am going to show you how you’ll be able to get fantastic results with only a few Steps in this activity will transform this image which is fairly dull to this everything will be done in just a few minutes in three steps one make it black and white to bring back color to her lips and nails.
Step 1: At first open the image in photoshop. Here I am using Photoshop CC 2017 Version. I know some people think Photoshop is an overwhelming program that’s difficult to use, but I’m here to take all the strain out of it.
Step 2: Go to the bottom right of Photoshop and click on this small yin yang symbol from this new list that appeared choose black and white.
Immediately image is changed. You’ll notice a new panel has appeared and it’s called properties. From here we can further adjust this black and white effect. Here I changed blues -11 and magentas -30
Step 3: Press B to identify the brush tools. Make sure you have the brush to select and not something else. We only want three things. First, select the very first brush from the list. Second, make sure the hardness is set at 0 percent. Last, adjust your size to about 60 pixels or so.
Make sure you have black as the top square here if that’s not the case. Press X on your keyboard and that will flip these two(black and white). Now press Z to activate the zoom tool you’ll see your cursor will now look like this click several times until you’re up close.
Press B (brush tool) and let’s start painting over her lips and nail. If you messed up, press X again and this time whites will be the top color paint over your mistake and it magically goes away.
Step 4: Now we finish our editing. After that Go to file export save for web legacy. This will bring up this window. Here you have a few settings you want to pay close attention to.
You can go with PNG 24 for maximum quality or if you need transparency. The other viable option is JPEG. You can either choose a preset very high is what I recommend you use. Press the save button and save your project.
