A photo look that many people want for their images is the black-and-white look. You can easily create this multiple ways in Adobe Photoshop. One of the ways to create a custom black-and-white effect is with the On Image tool. Join author Richard Harrington as he combines the On Image tool with an adjustment layer to create a black-and-white image.
- Photoshop offers a very compelling…black and white adjustment layer.…But to get the results that you want,…you should take advantage of the on image tool.…You learned about this tool earlier…when we looked at curves.…Well, let's see how it can actually work as well…for black and white adjustments.…Let's explore techniques to create black and white images…with the on image tool.…Now I've got two images here.…One is the N state and one is a starting image…that you'll work with.…Now the N state just shows you how things came together.…
