Black & White conversion
We assume you know Lightroom basics.
A digital photo to play with and Lightroom.
There are lots of ways to convert a digital image from colour to black and white. This tutorial shows you how to use Adobe Lightroom to create a stunning black and white image in just a few clicks.
1. Make a copy of your image (Photo > Create Virtual Copy)
2. In the 'Develop' section, convert to grayscale ('V')
3. Use the eyedropper tool in the Grayscale palette to adjust by tone
If you click and drag upwards, those tones similar to where you clicked will lighten. Click and drag downwards to darken.
4. If you think it needs it, boost the contrast using the Tone Curve
