We will use two techniques that will give you a lot of control and allow you to work non-destructively.
The first technique that you will learn will teach you to convert photos into black &white with Black and White Adjustment layer (introduced in Photoshop CS3).
The Black and White Adjustment Layer allows you to control the brightness of the grayscale version of a color after the black and white conversion has been made.
The second Black and White conversion technique is very similar, but it instead uses the Camera RAW Filter’s Black and White Mixer.
The Black & White Mixer works the same way as the Black and White adjustment Layer but it offers two additional control sliders. The “Oranges” slider, and the “Purple” slider.
