You need to set the brush for subtractivecolor and allow grey. I find Corel a lot easier to use for this function.

How do you take a black and white photo with olympus tg-310?


The TG-310 does not have any way of taking black&white photos, nor does it offer a method to convert photos to black&white.
However, you can convert a color photo to black&white (or sepia, or cyanotype, or a lot of other effects) using just about any photo editing program on a computer. This actually gives you more control over the conversion, as you can control things like contrast and brightness.

5 More Black & White Photography Tips


<b>Black & white </b>photography is one of the most interesting and inspiring aspects of this art form we call our hobby and passion. It's raw & refined, natural and unusual, bold and subtle, mysterious and open, emotional and indifferent, simple and complex, black & white & everything in between. The monochrome image has been practicing photography since the beginning, but what began as the only way to capture images is turned into something much deeper.<br /> 1. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE An experienced black & white photographer can see the world without color. They've trained their mind to pick up contrast and tone while blocking the distraction of colors. This isn't a skill that you can pick up in a short amount of time; it's something that comes naturally in time. I can't say that I'm gifted enough to have monochrome vision, but I have been able to notice certain scenes and subjects that would lend themselves to black & white.<br /><br /> One way to help train your brain is to make a conscious effort - in other words, practice. Trevor carpenter gave us the perfect example when he started his October Challenge. Basically, he decided to limit his photography to black & white for an entire month. This gave him a chance to experiment with the medium and learn from his own work, and in his project recap he states "I have found, especially in recent days, that as I'm shooting and conceiving a shot, I see the potential impact of the composition in black & white."<br /> Zig Zag<span></span><br /><br /> 2. FOCUS ON CONTRAST Black & white photography is about the black, the white, and all the tones in between. The human eye is built to pick up two things: light intensity and color. When you remove the color, your eyes become more sensitive to the light intensity. We naturally pick out areas of contrast - it's how we distinguish one thing from another. As a black & white photographer, your main objective is to make your point with shades of gray. Use contrast to show your onlookers what's important and what's not. Seek out scenes that naturally show signs of high contrast, and your black & white photos will be more compelling right from the start.<br />When post-processing a black & white image, the use of Photoshop techniques like levels, curves, and layer blends give you a wide variety of output options. In addition to these things, burning and dodging are highly effective methods of improving contrast. They work so well because they allow you to focus the edit on a localized portion of the image without affecting the surrounding areas<br /> 3. FOCUS ON TEXTURE Texture is really just a form of contrast, but it is perceived quite differently. If you think about it, texture is the regular or irregular pattern of shadows and highlights at various intensities. Black & white photos really lend themselves to texture because color generally add another layer of complexity, thus masking most subtle textures. Look for areas of interesting texture that can be photographed by zeroing in on specific surfaces and examining them for signs of patterned contrast.<br /><br /> The choices you make in post-processing can really make a difference in the texture too. During the black & white conversion, you can usually pull texture out of otherwise smooth surfaces based on your choice of conversion methods. In digital photos, blues and reds generally contain more noise than greens, so tools like the channel mixer and the black & white adjustment layer in Photoshop can really accentuate those embedded textures.<br /><br /> 4. CAPTURE IN COLOR This is mainly aimed at digital photographers... If your camera gives you the option of shooting in color or black & white, NEVER shoot in black & white. The camera is really capturing color, then converting to black & white. Photo editing software can do a much better job at the conversion, and you'll have more flexibility on the output of the final image. It's really amazing how different a photo can look solely based on the post-processing, so it's best not to limit yourself before the photo even makes it out of the camera<br /><br /> The one exception to this rule is if you wanted to use the black & white capture to give you a preview of what the scene might look like as a monochrome image. It may help you identify good black & white scenes more immediately, but once you find your shot switch back over to color capture and shoot it again.<br /> Under the Weather<br /><br /> 5. USE COLOR FILTERS Black & white film photographers make use of color filters to change the captured tones in their photographs. Ever see those monochrome images with dark skies and puffy white clouds? That's not natural; it requires the use of color filtering to produce the desired effect.<br /><br /> Using an actual color filter with a digital camera is perfectly acceptable and it has its merits, but it's not completely necessary. Software like Photoshop has the ability to apply non-destructive color filters. It also has the ability to produce the same results as a color filter during the black & white conversion. For those of you using Photoshop CS3, you'll see that the black & white adjustment dialog has several preset filters that can be applied and modified to suit the photo.<br /><br />

How to get b & w pictures from my Nikon P 300 digital camera?


There are two monochrome modes available among the Special Effects in the Scene modes. They are Nostalgic Sepia and High Contrast Monochrome. Full details are in the Scene/Special Effect section of the manual (page 56 in my copy). There's also a Black and White Copy mode (page 54). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
In general you're better off shooting in color and converting to black&white using a photo editor on a computer. This gives you much more control over factors such as contrast and luminance.

How do I take black and white photos with my Jenoptik JD 4100 Z3?


Usually on most digital cameras there is a special effect mode if there is one. Black and White setting should be in there.

Another way to do it is to load the picture into your computer and use a photo editing program. Most of them carry a black and white feature to it.

How do i change a Nikon D70 to black and white


The Nikon D70 does not have a black-and-white mode setting.

However, you can take your photo in color and then use software to convert it to a grayscale photo. (Black and white implies an image with only those two values per pixel; grayscale can have 8 to 16 bits per pixel.) Most photo editing packages have a "desaturate" feature that does an automated conversion to grayscale.

The open source image editor Gimp has a "channel mixer" dialog that would allow you to approximate the effect of various filters before performing the desaturate function. This would allow you to experiment with the procedures if you do not have a commercial photo editor like Adobe PhotoShop. There is a special wrapper of Gimp that puts its interface into a configuration like that of PhotoShop; look for "GimpShop". The open source image manipulation package ImageMagick may also be used if you prefer working with command line utilities.

White objects (especially text) on a black background produce a white halo effect around the white lettering. When playing a PS3 game I noticed that the blue color appeared black, as though I had no blue...





Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
