Part 35 - Creating Black & White Images

June 2007 Magazine


The advent of digital photography may be seen by some as a ‘nail in the coffin’ for black & white but the reality is that digital cameras and computer processing make the creation of black & white images easier than with film. The article in the printed magazine explains how to create high quality black & white images. The graphics are shown here so that readers can compare the different images on a PC display.

Below are an original colour image and the result of several different methods for converting the colour image to black & white.
