saving black and white images
I have this doubt when I save black and white images.
Original raw files are rgb. I retouch them in rgb mode because I use channels for masking and so. But when saving the final black and white image: should I keep rgb or I should save in grayscale mode?
Is there any advantage to save them in rgb?
This images will be for printing.
Hope you can clarify this to me.
Thanks in advance!
Re: saving black and white images
There are at least 10 ways to convert an image from RGB to B&W and each of them will give you a different result / look. It would be wise to keep the RGB image because at some future date you might want to take a different conversion approach. Once the RGB image is gone, so goes a lot of info that would allow you to do that.
