B&W to colour in progressive steps

B&W to colour in progressive steps

B&W to colour in progressive steps


I have a colour photograph which I'd like to print out 6 times starting at complete monochrome and ending up in full colour.  I see how to make an image monochrome - that's easy enough - but to have the different stages?  I looked hard for a way but so far I'm stumped!

Thanks for any help!

RE: B&W to colour in progressive steps

Somewhere in the Colour menu (I'm at work and PSP's on my home PC!) there's an option to adjust Hue, Saturation and Lightness (HSL). If you progressively reduce the amount of Saturation you'll get the effect you're after.

RE: B&W to colour in progressive steps

Thanks Chris, I'll have another look, although I thought I'd looked at that previously without finding the effect I was after.  Cheers!
