How to Make an Image Black and White

Edited by Pat Bitton

July 24, 2019

Despite all the advantages of color photography, monochrome photos remain popular. No wonder, as they have a particular distinctiveness and depth. Black and white images make us pay more attention to the shape of objects and their texture. In addition, greyscale is a good way to restore color photos with defects. If your photos were taken in a poor lighting, a black and white converter will help you fix the flaws!

In fact, with the help of a black and white filter, you can quickly improve almost any photo. Whatever the viewing point or viewing angle of your image, or if you forgot to set the black and white mode while you were shooting, don't worry!
