The Black & White adjustment lets you convert a color image to grayscale and specify the color tone. Watch our video tutorial to learn more about the Black & White adjustment.
Select the main menu item Image -> Adjustment -> Black & White to make the adjustment parameters appear in the Settings Panel.
You can also use a Black & White adjustment layer (command Layers -> New -> Adjustment Layer -> Black & White) which will affect all underlying layers without changing their content.
You can apply the tonal Correction using the hexagon consisting of 6 sections, each having one color and a control. Use the control to darken or lighten the gray tones that correspond to the original image colors and are close to the section color. The closer the control to the center, the darker the tone, and vice versa, the farther from the center, the lighter the tone.
The default settings can be restored with a left-click on the gray hexagon in the center.
Toning. Choose a color on the gradient circle to add a color tint to the image. By default, the control is in the center of the gradient circle and the image has gray tones. You can set a tint with a left-click on the gradient circle; the control will move to the defined point. The control also regulates the tint saturation - the farther from the center, the more saturated the color shade is.
