Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Converting a photo to black and white, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- I think black and white photography is terrific and…Photos for OS 10 does really a good job of giving us many…options to create black and white images from our snapshots.…I'm going to show you how that works right now.…Let's do this portrait right here.…I think this portrait's going…to be really good in black and white.…Go ahead and open it up.…Oh, that's not Unnamed,…I just haven't added a Faces' name to it yet.…Let's go to Edit right here.…All right.…
