Photoshop is used in many industries to edit or modify the image. Sometimes instead of adding colors to an image we require greyscaling it, especially in the print media industry. Today we learn how to Convert Images to Grayscale Using Adobe Photoshop.
Now let us see how to convert a picture into grayscale for print in Photoshop.
First, we need to change the picture into black and white. There are many ways to change an image from color to black and white. One of the fastest ways is to desaturate the image.
- It desaturates the image and gives the black and white effect. Go to “Image” select “adjustment” and then “Desaturate”.
- Now enhance the contrast of the image by giving “gamma correction”.
- Go to “layer”, in it select “New Adjustment Layer” and click on the “Explore”
- Now increase the “gamma correction slider”.
Save the file on which you have worked in PSD format. To save it in PSD format, simply click “File”, “save as” and select the specified format.
This is the step in which we will be using the grayscale for print in Photoshop. Choose “Image”. In it click on to “Mode” and then select “Grayscale”.
There will be a popup with a dialogue box. Use the options if you wish to flatten the layers. Click OK. Another dialogue box will appear asking if you want to terminate the other channels. Click OK.
Your image with the Grayscale for print is now ready for the best output. You may check the Grayscale for print by using the “Windows” and “Channel”. You will not be in a position to spot any Red, Green, or Blue Channels.
