Video duration: 0s 42m 1s Intermediate


Shoot in color, but think in black and white. In this course, Adobe Photoshop Senior Product Manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes shares his favorite techniques for transforming color photographs into black and white, a technique that provides more creative options than using your camera's black-and-white mode. Learn how to prepare and fine-tune your photographs in Lightroom, and then move them into Photoshop to take advantage of its nondestructive adjustment layers. The course also introduces techniques for using Photoshop to adjust the color of video clips.

Topics include:
  • Why black and white?
  • Shooting with black and white in mind
  • Setting up Lightroom and creating image versions
  • Utilizing presets effectively
  • Creating black-and-white HDR images with Lightroom and Photoshop
  • Taking advantage of black-and-white adjustment layers
  • Adjusting the toning of images
  • Working with the Silver Efex plugin


- [Voiceover] Hi, my name is Bryan Anille Hughes. And I'd like to welcome you to Black and White with Lightroom and Photoshop. We're going to talk about how to select the best images for black and white. And then I'll show you how far you can take them in Lightroom. Not just for one image, but a lot of images. We'll talk about fine-tuning those in Lightroom, and then how Lightroom and Photoshop can work together. From there, we'll move into Photoshop, and get much further into selective edits and tricks with layers. We'll even go a little bit further with video, and some special third-party plugins.

So I hope you enjoy yourself with Black and White with Lightroom and Photoshop. Let's get started.
