Chapter 7. Black and White and Special Effects

Some images were made to seen in black and white, and Lightroom not only makes it possible to quickly convert a color image to grayscale, but to control the conversion of individual colors as well. The results are roughly equivalent to using different colored filters with panchromatic black and white film. You can produce dramatic skies or brilliant foliage and much more. It's up to you. Pushing the boundaries with special effects are also a slider away in Lightroom's Develop module, as you will learn in this chapter.
