As I was working through scripting for the Black & White segment of my new Adobe Camera Raw series, it just kept getting longer, and longer and longer. Which…. just might be a problem. But as I dug into it, it also just kept getting more and more interesting! So I decided to spin it out, and turn it into a separate, and completely free tutorial.
In this video, I start by taking you on a brief exploration of some of the various conversion techniques that we all used back before there were better controls for creating good black & white’s from raw data. And I did this because I think reviewing those tried-and-true Photoshop techniques, helps set the stage for a better understanding of black & white conversion in general.
So here’s a new tutorial on Black & White conversion. It’s free, just for the asking. Simply drop your e-mail address here, and I’ll shoot you the link to the online tutorial.
Total running time for this video is a little over 36 minutes. Please note that if you are looking for “tutorials” that are under 10 minutes in length, then you are at the wrong website. Somehow….. you have confused mulita.com with a fast-food establishment.
To view the tutorial on an iPad, the link provided by this form will serve Quicktime that is custom formatted for the iPad, too. And if you think it looks good on your iPad, wait until you see it on your HDTV!
Also, if you would rather read a somewhat condensed version online, check out the Digital Photo Pro article, here.
