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

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...
