Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking advantage of adjustment layers , part of Lightroom and Photoshop: Black-and-White Photography.
- We've talked a lot about using Lightroom…and Camera Raw for black and white conversions.…And I do think that that's one of…the very, very best ways of doing it.…But in Photoshop, Photoshop really speaks…a different language natively.…And that's the language of layers.…And layers have a lot of unique potential.…And I wanna show you what the work flow…looks like around black and white.…It's a lot like Camera Raw, in that we're going…to tune for a really nice color image…before converting to black and white.…So let's start with this image here…and we're gonna walk through…just a couple of my favorite adjustment layers.…
This is a flat image. There are no layers yet.…But in the Adjustment panel, as soon as I come to curves,…I've created a Curves Adjustment Layer.…Now for a lot of folks, this can be a scary…and intimidating dialog.…You've got some great presets here.…So, I can come in here and say,…"I just want stronger contrast."…And that's what I've got.…It's mapped a strong contrast curve.…I could click Auto, which works really well here.…
