    Default B&W in Elements

    Would anyone like to share how they convert their colour pictures to B&W with Photoshop Elements?

    I'm looking at something which is able to detail better tonal quality than discarding colour in greyscale mode.

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Do this (PS2) : Enhance, Adjust Colour, Remove Colour.

    That's it.

    Cheers

    using the method just described also does not allow you to have tonal control.

    in not sure about elements because i use photoshop cs
    but you could try this.

    method A
    1. add a hue saturation layer and change its blending mode to color
    2. add a hue saturation layer and with saturation set to -100. normal blending mode
    3. adjust the hue of the first layer to achieve the tones you want.
    4. emphasize these tones by adding a levels layer above all these layers and work on the desired contrast...

    method B
    1. add a chanel mixer layer. work on the red greeen and blue chanels in percentages to get the tones you want.
    2. add levels layer like step 4 from method A

    alhtough elements is watered down version of the original version of photoshop, i believe it has these functions... so try them...
