Yes, you can desaturate the image first then choose specific area by the lasso, polygon lasso tool and then go to image menu and use hue & saturation option, click on colorize option... use the sliders accordingly, change the hue, saturation & lightness slider...
you will get your result

Is any one familiar with Onyx Production house software?? These are the issues I am having: Software Version: RIP-Queue 6.00 6.00 Release 12/10/2003 Build 6774 1) Black and White - Photographs come...


This sounds to me like a setting mess up ...Try to reset the printer from the main menu ..to the original defaults ...This will probably be present like a feature in the menu ..or by turning it down and keep the power button pressed for few seconds no less then 5 when you start it again ...Unplug it also when you shut it down ..this in case it is a printer with not that complicated menu ..
Another thing to do in order to avoid any software settings that causes this issue ..is to reinstall the software you use for printing ,,and the driver for the communication between the printer and the computer ...This way you will be sure that all the settings are on default values..and any issue that may persist will be on a physical nature...

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 />

Problem with printing black and white photos


Probably what happen is that you are printing black and white but you have your printer on color mode, try to set the printer to grayscale or black and white before print. The printer is tring to get the black and white by mixing all three color, that is the most comon way of make black, so, when one of the color is missing you see those red lines.
Also you will solve the problem replacing the color cartridge.

My printer copy's in color but prints photos in black and white,


Check your settings for your printer software program, change it to black and white, and then you will need to change it back to color, if you want to print in color.

Bad contrast with scanner


Last things first: NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.

That's the way HP does things. There are no rheostats or pots to adjust. It's all done electronically now, with chips and things.

You never said how it does with color or greyscale photos or drawings.

As for the RGB=(64,64,64), that's about right for the scan picture settings and the mixed (text and graphics) setting, and is particularly true for color picture settings. Have you tried using the setting for drawings (or line art), specifically greyscale drawings? Usually the greyscale lineart or drawing setting will render black text. You might also try scanning with the settings set for Text. If the greyscale drawing settings or greyscale text settings do not produce black text, try reinstalling your software and drivers.

If the contrast stays the same for all settings after reinstalling the software and drivers, and if it doesn't scan color and greyscale pictures correctly, then it sounds like your scanner is going bad.

As for the scans you've already done, you can darken the text by taking it into a photo editor, such as Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop, and adjust the contrast and brightness to get the effect you desire.

How to shoot in black and white???


This camera does not have the capability to shoot images in black and white. What you need to do is to take the images in color, download them to computer and then use photo editing software to then be in black and white. Most software applications have that as an editing option.

I think it's one or the other because the camera doesn't know what you want to color and what you don't want to color. Thats something more for Photoshop to do.
