Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding color to a black and white image, part of Lightroom: Creative Color.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at how we can add…a split-toning color effect to a black-and-white photograph.…So here we'll start off by going through…a black-and-white conversion workflow,…and we'll add some split-toning color to the image.…Often people will go to the basic panel…and simply de-saturate the photograph to convert…it to black and white, and that isn't…the best option, because it really limits…the way the image appears.…So rather than doing that, what you want to do…is go down to the black and white panel,…and inside of the black and white panel here,…we can see all of our sliders and controls.…And some of them, the reds and oranges in this image,…will allow us to brighten or darken the skin tone.…
So here I can either darken the skin tone…or brighten it up,…and often when you have a photograph…of a person, you want to have really bright…reds, oranges, and yellows.…It just helps to kind of bring out…that part of the image, so the skin looks…like it's glowing a little bit more.…And we can fine-tune a few other areas.…
