It’s time to move on to Black and Whiting. Lightroom’s Black and White features are simple and quite intuitive, so this chapter will be short and sweet, but very useful nonetheless.
In this Lightroom video tutorial, we are going to walk through two examples where we will be taking Color Corrected images from previous tutorials in the Color Correction Chapter and turning them into black and white images. In the second image example, we will go a little further and teach you some advanced black and white toning controls in the Black and White Mix Panel. These Black and White Mix options give you a little more control over black and white toning.
