Join Colin Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting grayscale images, part of Lightroom 1.3 for Digital Photographers.
There is something very powerful about a great black-and-white image. …They have a lot of mystery and mystique about them. …In Lightroom, there are different ways of creating black-and-white images. …Before we jump in there, let's just talk quickly a little bit about the theory. …Rather than taking an image which is in RGB mode and throwing away the color information …and turning it into a grayscale, which will be a single-channel image, we're not actually …going to be doing that; we're still going to be working inside RGB mode. …When you take a photo with your camera, your camera captures three grayscale images: one …on the red, one on the green, and one on the blue channels.…
So, rather than throwing away two of those channels and just having the grayscale, we're …going to merge the grayscale information from these three different channels together to …create a nice grayscale conversion. …This is the same way if you're working inside Photoshop and you're using the Channel Mixer. …That's a very good method. …
