How to change a colour photo in black and white?

Simply we can change colour photo into black and white by following these steps in photoshop
• go to image – select mode – grayscale
• go to image – select adjustment – black and white (all image change in black and white originally )
• go to layer menu – select new adjustment layer – black and white (original image remain as it is in separate layer)

Simply you can go to layer menu – new adjustment layer – black and white. By this method you can get the option of preset, and tint by which you can modify your images in better way.

Re: How to change a colour photo in black and whit

Personally, I like to change the image mode to Lab Colour, then in the channels click on 'lightness', after that change the image mode to greyscale. I dont know what is happening behind the scenes exactly but the 'lightness' channel gives such a nicer B&W conversion than just converting to Greyscale or desaturating.

Do one of the following:

1. Click the Black & White icon in the Adjustments panel.

2. Choose Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Black & White. In the New Layer dialog box, type a name for the adjustment layer and then click OK.

Photoshop applies a default grayscale conversion.
