Chapter 7. Black & White: Photoshop in B... > Scott’s High-Contrast Black-and-Whit... - Pg. 195

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Alternate Version One: I mentioned that I would give you two alternate versions you can achieve with just one click, so in total you can choose from three different high-contrast versions (because three choices are better than one, right?). For this version, go to the Layers palette and drag the Channel Mixer adjustment layer below the Gradient Map adjustment layer. Now take a look at the photo. It's a slightly different version. Do you like it better or not (it's totally up to you)? Alternate Version Two: Here's another great version to try: Click on the Background layer in the Layers palette, then go under the Image menu, under Adjustments, and choose Desaturate. This removes the color from the Background layer. Now, just choose the black-and-white version you like best from those three, and then make that one your high-contrast black-and- white conversion.
