Editing Photo No3


For this photo, the colour is a bit off and too bright. So this I’ve decided for this photograph I want to transform it into black and white. Editing photos black and white is my favourite adjustment. It can change a photo completely.



Original Photo


For a more in depth guide on how to edit photos black & white click here.

First of all you need to click onto Image > Adjustments > Black & White.


Image > Adjustments > Black & White

There a box will appear, all you have to do is click okay. then the photo will transform black and white.

As can see the image is a soft black and white, therefore to intensify the image I have used brightness/contrast and levels to do so. By changing the input and output levels you can make the image more intense and whole lot more interesting.


Brightness/contrast tool.



Here you can see the input and output levels on the levels tool.





Here is my original and final image.

Next is my fourth favourite photo edit.






How to make a Black & White photo

My favourite photo editing is the transformation of colour photos to black and white, however only when it’s done properly. In this tutorial, I will be demonstrating how to create a black and white photograph.


First, you need a photograph, then you need to open the photograph in Photoshop. This can be done by clicking – File > Open then select your image.

Once you have the image open you then need to select Image > Adjustments > Black & White. Your image will then become black and white and an adjustments box will appear, click Auto > Okay.


Image > Adjustments > Black & White


Auto > Ok

I find I’m not happy enough with the result at first so I continue to further edit the photo as follows. I use the tool ‘Levels’. This tool decides how much white and/or black you want in your photo. It does this by changing the brightness, contrast and tone of the photo.

To do this Image > Adjustment > Levels. An adjustments box will pop up; there you can use the sliders to freely edit the input of the photo to what you want and are happy with.


Image > Adjustments > Levels

Once you’re happy with the edit, then File > Save.


Here, you can see the difference between the original image and the black & white edited version.
