Getting more contrast on B&W conversion
Mar 17, 2004

I'm converting some images that I have from color to B&W. I tried a number of different methods (taking the lightness channel in LAB mode, using the channel mixer, and desaturating), but I always end up with a rather flat image. I've tried adjusting the curves a bit, but even that is not delivering the result that I'm looking for. Any suggestions for bumping up the contrast? Thanks.
