How to Intensify Black and White Images & Make Them

Converting a digital color photo into black and white goes beyond simply desaturation the colors, and can be made to mimic any of a wide range of looks created by using color filters in black and white film photography. A conversion which does not take into account an image’s color and subject of interest can dilute the artistic message and may create an image which appears washed out or lacks tonal range. This section provides a background on using color filters and outlines several different black and white conversion techniques — comparing each in terms of their flexibility and ease of use.

Now you can see the images is open up and now we can going to <image>adjustment>desaturate all the color back and white make it

Now the 1st step we can do and make it more dramatics now can we do by 1st step duplicate the layer background and 2nd one the duplicate layer set up the overlay color and set the opacity 50%

And now 2ndone you get new adjustment layer and pick a gradient map now obviously you gradient and pick white and black. Same thing as before us going to setting an overlay and also do opacity on 50%



So now we can do this add some adjustment layer and createnew adjustment layer>exposure.. layer and we can start with exposure some adjustment with them. Now we can see the difference



We can another layer and new adjustment layer> brightness/contrast we now incresce brightness and contrast

Now we can see a diametric white color

Now we can do make layer and we can going to <image>apply image then doing with dodge tool and burn tool now keep your brush tool and doing with image

Now click on filter go sharpen and click and ok then again go sharpen more click on her then ok .

And difference between after and before



It’s worth taking the time to experiment with these different methods when deciding how to approach black and white conversion. Some may work better for you than others, but always remember to keep an original copy of the image if using a destructive method!
