Great Black and White in Photoshop

I’m often asked how to turn a color photograph into a Black & White image. Some people use the Black & White setting on their digital camera (and some use Tri-X film – often using manual filters!). The problem with traditional Black and White settings is that the resulting images lack dynamics, but with Photoshop, we can control the dynamics and contrast in an image, with a lot of power and ease.

In this Tutorial, you’ll learn about the power of the Black and White Adjustment Layer, and how do perform some cool special effects using this very simple and powerful tool.

Selecting, Copy, Pasting, Drag & Drop Part II

So, how much do you really know about the various methods to select text, and copy or move it to other locations in your computer? In Part II of a two part Tutorial, I teach about what you can do with the data you select – Cut it, Copy it, Paste it, or Drag & Drop it.

Many of my very experienced students have found that they’ve been going about making their changes the long way. The goal of Part I (Selecting) and Part II (Copy/Paste/Drag & Drop) of this tutorial is to teach students the most efficient methods of selecting text (either a lot or a little), and getting that text to another location in a document, or into another program entirely!

This tutorial focuses on Microsoft Word 2010, but the techniques used here are system-wide. They can be used for text programs, image programs, getting things off the web, spreadsheets… once you know these techniques, Just experiment.

Let me know if there’s anything that was missed, and if you DID learn anything new. I look forward to your comments.

This was posted to YouTube well before the blog came live, but it’s the first of the tutorials. It addresses that issue so many people have, in which bulk emails display the email address of every person who received them. Find out how to avoid that.

If you visit the YouTube Page, you’ll find a list of links to view the parts of the video that apply to your specific email software.
