- In the last movie we saw…that when you start your Lightroom Elements workflow…with a non-raw image,…like a TIFF or a PSD or a JPG,…you get three options to choose from…when you pass the photo over to Elements…for editing there.…One of those options is Edit a Copy,…and that's what I'm going to show you in this movie.…This option comes in really handy…when you make some adjustments to a photo in Lightroom…and then you want to try it out…in a different direction by making completely…different adjustments in Elements.…So let's see how it works.…I'm starting here in Lightroom…with a non-raw image, a PSD file,…which I'm going to adjust in Lightroom's Develop Module.…
I'll press d on the keyboard…to switch over to the develop module,…and here, I'm going to make a custom conversion…to black and white.…I'll click the HSL / Color / B&W panel,…and that converts the image to black and white…with these automatic settings.…And then, I can tweak those, for example,…if I want the blues in the image to be darker,…I can drag the Blue slider over to the left.…
