You can convert your images to black and white in Affinity Photo. In this video, Derrick Story shows how to convert your photographs to monochrome using this editing extension. Affinity Photo is a full-featured image editor that many use as an alternative to Photoshop.
- [Instructor] We'll take a peek at Affinity Monochrome.…I'll be honest with you, I don't use this tool…a whole lot, because I really like…the black and white tools built into Photos for Mac OS.…And I also like the editing extension Tonality,…which I think also does a really great job…with split toning, and black and white, and so forth.…But if you do get the other Affinity tools,…you do have this, and so let's take a peek at it.…Basically, you get an instant conversion,…and then you have the different channels up here.…
We can do a little toning here, as you see,…a little adding color, and then we have…Sharpening and Vignette down here.…And, of course, we have an Output Curve.…So, for example, if I take the blue down a bit,…there's a lot of blue in this shot,…now you have to be careful, if you're too heavy-handed,…you really can start to get some banding and so forth,…so this is not a place to go berserk,…but to really watch your image.…So we can take it not really that far,…we can take it about to there.…
We'll play with the red a bit, kind of add some snap there.…
