Processing in Lightroom: A Fountain

by James Duncan Davidson

Some images simply pop in color and can stand a healthy dose of vibrance. Others just work better in black and white. Luckily, with digital RAW capture, you can postpone the decision of whether to finish an image in color or black and white until you get back home and can work with it in the digital darkroom. Then, you can render an image in multiple ways until its perfect. When render a black and white image in Lightroom, the Greyscale Mix is a great tool that's been well covered. There's another tool, however, that you can use on black and white images that you might not be as familiar with. It's the Split Toning tool.
