Sometimes you might want to change your photograph to a black & white photograph to give your photograph a totally different look. The following instructions describe how to change your photograph using Adobe Photoshop.
 
1. Open the file. Choose File --> Open --> Enter the image name.
2. Hold the Ctrl Key down and hit the + key a few times to zoom in the image to a size you need to work with.

Adobe Photoshop window

3. Choose Layer --> New Adjustment Layer --> Hue/Saturation and set the Blending Mode to Color. (Figure 4 - A) Click OK.

4. Choose Layer --> New Adjustment Layer --> Hue/Saturation and leave the Blending Mode to Normal. Set the Saturation to -100 (Figure 1 - A). Click 'OK'. Now you have two Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layers.

5.  Double-click on the layer thumbnail of the bottom Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer. (Figure 2 - A)

6. The 'Hue' slider is what makes it all happen-move it around to see how the conversion reacts. (Figure 3 - A) You can also boost the saturation to make the effect more drastic.
7. Adjust it to your liking, and you're done! Tweaking the 'Hue' slider results in as if the picture was taken with different color filters.
8. Save the image with a new file name.

Love The Sky At First Encounter Beach On Cape Cod!

The sky was just beautiful at First Encounter Beach the other day. I couldn’t decide if I liked the horizontal or vertical one better. (Click on blog link for other photo.) What do you think? Isn’t the sky so pretty?

Pretty Reflections At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

The trails were all open, but many were one way, and the fall colors were amazing. I loved this photograph of  Silver Spring from one of the little docks. The reflections were so vibrant! What do you think?

Looking Across Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

This is such a pretty view looking across Nauset Marsh out toward Coast Guard Beach. And this Seagull just happened to be perched on this rock which made it even better. I loved the colors. What do you think? The water is so still…
