BnW Adjustment layer different to making image Greyscale

Recommended Posts

If I change the Colour Format of an image to Greyscale, it looks much darker than if I add a Black and White Adjustment layer.

Is one Greyscale and one literally black and white? Does this account for the difference?

Hi Markeeee,

This forum thread may be of interest to you with regards to converting to Grayscale. Basically changing the Colour format to Grayscale is destructive and removes the colour data from the image whereas using a Black & White Adjustment keep the colour data and allows it to be used to change the appearance of the image.
