Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Using black-and-white film conversion, part of Getting Started with Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.
- All right, the last effect that we're gonna look at…in this chapter is converting color photos…to black and white.…So if you don't have black and white film,…you can take your color photos,…come into Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2,…and convert them to black and white photos quite easily,…and there's many different ways to do it.…So we're gonna look at a few before we end with a bang,…with our Black and White Film Conversion feature.…I've got this one here called b_w open here right now…from the 0_5 Effects folder of the Exercise files,…and we're gonna start with a simple one…which is right under the Image menu.…
We come down to Greyscale,…give that a click, and you can see that…the photo is now void of any color.…Any color that was there just got replaced…with varying degrees of shades of grey.…So that's not bad,…I mean it looks like a black and white photo,…but I don't have any interest.…I don't have any contrast, and…I just think I could do better,…and there are some other options that…can allow us to get a little more creative.…

Q: When I press the red eye button it gives me a small circle, and I am unable to adjust the size of the circle. What could be causing this problem?
A: First, make sure you’re working with an image file. Zoom into the eye itself first. Try using the arrows to change the size up or down. If that doesn't work, try clicking the dropdown arrow next to the up and down arrows and drag the slider left or right. Or, you can simply try typing in a number in the size field. One other option is to hold down your Alt key and then click and drag over the eye to select a size. If none of these work, try contacting Corel's tech support team to see if you're software has a bug.
