So I did some more research and decided I needed to update an old tutorial with some new information.  I updated the Black and White conversion tutorial to show the conversion techniques effect on a custom made CMYK/RGB/WK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Red, Green, Blue, White, Black) color wheel.  I was astonished by some of the results.  I hope it helps you make the appropriate decision when converting your images to the grayscale.  For me, it really cleared my blurry eyes on such a seemingly simple task.  I have also attached the color wheel to the end of the post, if you make it that far.

All of the new content will be posted in BLUE for those of you who have already read it through.

 

Convert me to Grayscale….Go ahead, make my millennium!

Blake Rudis
f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
