I've looked at many books recently and found them quite vague on the whole. Usually they are too advanced or too basic for the average person on the street but this book is a breath of fresh air. Not only does it explain things in good detail it conveys the workflow easily and not too technically. This book is also bang up to date with techniques not only for older versions of Photoshop and Elements but the latest CS3 version. Methods for bettering my B & W pictures using CS3 alone are worth more than I paid for the book.
I would recommend this book to everyone except those that live and breath Photoshop in their everyday working or private life as I feel you may be far ahead of it.

This is the book I use most of the time, now Photoshop CS3/4 are available. This is similar in layout to Tony Worobiec's book which is excellent but only goes up to CS2. There were some majors changes in CS3 regarding Black & White conversion. I believe this is the best book currently on this subject. Please note that this book is based on Photoshop so will be of less use to non Photoshop users. However if you are serious about digital B&W photography suggest you buy Photoshop Elements for about £50 and this book.

With film cameras, black and white photography was a popular means by which many could express themselves by personally processing the film and making prints without the expense or complexities of doing the same in colour. There were3 many books that covered the topic but they are not relevant to digital technologies.

Now that digital photography is the norm and many carry a small compact camera more or less everywhere, black and white work is less popular. Colour is the native form with digital cameras and to work in black and white means that you need to change some settings and then change them back later.

Printing in black and white demands additional thought. Most colour printers use four inks, cyan, yellow, magenta and black. The black is usually reserved for text and the three colours together can in theory provide a close approximation of black if done well but you will often detect a slight tinge of green, blue or purple if there are slight imperfections. Some printers may provide shaded inks in addition to the standard colours in order to create a greater variety of shades and tones. Then there are a few that provide 3 or even 4 grey and black inks and these are perfect for both black & white and colour printing, but they are expensive.

This book talks through the whole process, from camera to print, and helps you get the best from your existing equipment. Well written, well-illustrated, it is possibly the best book on the subject that I know. If you want to try black & white or are dissatisfied with the results you are getting, this should help you.

An excellent approach to the subject
