Nice tones in this Lorraine, how do you revert to B/W, if you just desaturate, this is the worst way to go, if you had gone around the bay you would have found me getting wet inside in the HIGH TIDE INN.

Hi Lorraine
I go into Photoshop and use the black and white function, go to image-black and white- try auto first, if you do not get the desired effect, click the preset button and go for maximum whites and maximum blacks, this works very well, silver efx is also excellent, the one I use most now is OnOne phototools, the B/W function there is also excellent!

Regards

Trev.

Cheers for that info Trev, I shall certainly give that a go,I think I have OnOne Phototools on my other pc, so I shall also give that a try ,its strange when I see someone else's B&W image I instantly by looking at it, know if I like it or not, but when it comes to ones I do, I am never sure
