how do you turn the photo to B&W
i like using the channel mixer method.
Converting Color Images to B&W using the GIMP
You can also just go:
Colors>Hue-Saturation then adjust the saturation slider to "0"?
Not sure if that would yield the same results that Cuervo posted.
go to hue-saturation===>saturation slide bar====>decrease -100
hehe good point... since the default is 0...
With channel mixer you have a measure of control of the contrast by adjusting each channel, which is what a black and white image is all about, contrast. For further refinement of the image a lot of artist use dodge and burn techniques to highlight or diminish parts of the image.
Taking the saturation to -100 gets rid of the color but does nothing for the contrast.
