In this section, you will learn how to convert a photo into black and white (monochrome) in Photoshop.
We have already introduced a black and white picture technique in How to convert a photo into black and white in Photoshop 1, this time you will be able to adjust its color even after converting them into black and white (monochrome) so that you can create your ideal pictures.
Have a color picture to be converted into black and white (monochrome) ready.
Convert the picture into black and white (monochrome). Select [Layer -> New Adjustment Layer -> Black and White] and press OK.
Now the photo is converted into black and white (monochrome).
The red parts of the steel tower are a little dim. We will adjust them using auto correction and slider.
Click the hand icon on the left top of the dialog box and place the cursor on the picture. An eyedropper icon appears. Click the part you would like to put adjustment and move the mouse to left and right so that you can directly adjust the contrast of the picture. It is more convenient that moving the slider in the dialog box.
You can also adjust the contrast with the <pre-set list>. I chose <infrared> in the image above. Now it looks brighter as a whole than Step03 and at the same time the dimmed clouds turned clear as well.
Since we did not modify the original picture, you can re-edit as many times as you wish and the quality of the image in conserved.
