Free Photoshop Action Makes It Even Faster to Do the Work of the Black and White Adjustment Layer
The Black and White adjustment layer feature in Photoshop allows you to creatively convert color photos to monochrome shots. In the days of black and white film cameras, photographers could use colored filters on their lenses. These filters affected the way that light reached the film. White light results from the combination of different colors of light. Coincidentally, we can see these colors broken down every time we see a rainbow.
Lens filters are designed to block different colors of light from reaching the film. For example, a red filter would block red light and so a red flower would appear lighter because less light reflected from it would reach the film. The Black and White adjustment layer emulates some of these traditional filters. As a result, it also gives users more flexibility and control than in the days of shooting on film.
