About this week’s episode
In this week’s episode Manni will show you how to do Black and White Toning in Photoshop. It’s a very straightforward technique, one which you can easily apply to your other images. This tutorial will focus on these certain adjustments:
- Black & White Adjustment Layer – Tweaking individual colour pallets to get the right look.
- Brightness/Contrast Adjustment Layer – Specifically more for pushing the contrast.
- Exposure Adjustment Layer – Creating an extra small pop, adjusting the gamma and the offset for a faded look.
- Selective Colour Adjustment Layer – Working with neutral, black and white tones.
Remember that you can always go back and tweak the individual adjustment layers as you progress through your retouching.
Get The Action
An easier way to apply this same technique to multiple images and save time is to use our Black and White Pro Actions.
