We are going to click on the icon for Convert to Grayscale and that will convert our image to black-and-white. Next, what you can do is you can use these sliders to change the Brightness value of the different tones in your image. Let's say that we want to brighten up the skin, well, we can then use these sliders and here we can go ahead and click and drag these amounts so that we can then brighten up the skin.
