Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video More about the Black & White dialog box, part of Photography Foundations: Black and White.
I have more to say about the Black and White dialog box.…In fact, I've got a lot more to say, and we'll be talking about it throughout the…rest of this course.…But before we go back to it, I want to look at another tool in Photoshop,…not one that I think you should use, but one that is used in a lot of other…image-editing programs…and one that if you've been using Photoshop for a long time, you might be used to…using, and I want to talk about it because I think if you're an old Photoshop…hand who has used this tool before, it's important to explain how it's different…from the Black and White dialog.…I've got the same exercise file open that we used in the last lesson.…
I am going to go to Image > Adjustments > Channel Mixer, and it brings up this thing,…which looks kind of like the Black and White dialog box, except I've only got…three color channels.…To get a grayscale conversion, I have to check this Monochrome box, and that…gives me again a default grayscale recipe.…Now I've got red, green, and blue.…
