Assignment Unit 9

Black & White

Take a colorful RAW image and convert it to BW in three different ways:

First Desaturate the image in either Camera Raw (bottom slider in main edit screen, drag all the way to the left) or in Photoshop(Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation. Drag Saturation to left to -100). Save this with “desat’ in name.

Then convert it to Black and White via “Grayscale’ in Photoshop (Image>Adjustments>Grayscale (say yes to discarding the color information)). Save that one with “gray’ in the name.

Now use the Camera Raw (or Lightroom) editor in Camera Raw (fourth button under the Histogram, then click “Convert to Grayscale’ button. Use the color sliders to alter the way the original color tones convert to gray). Save this with “BW’ in the name.

Upload these, along WITH THE ORIGINAL COLOR IMAGE, for your assignment this week.
