Black or White ?? Which One

Photoshop Madness for the holidays

Vincent Ferraro writes in his facebook submission :
Either/Or . . . If you’re like me you oftentimes can’t decide which you like better Color or B&W. Does it have to be either/or? Use of the Gradient tool to produce a B&W to Color Gradient. Simple & Elegant.       Bring your photo into Photoshop and make a copy of it. On the top layer convert it to Black & White. (Image-Adjustments-Black & White).       On upper (B&W) layer add a Layer Mask. Click on the Gradient Tool then select the Horizontal (left to right) icon. With cursor on right side of graphic click and drag to the left. Repeat until it pleases you.
The beauty of having separate layers is that you can adjust the settings of each layer independent of the other.

Photoshop Madness for the holidays

Here's a site called "Photoshop Tutorials" and Yassine Belbadaoui says: This page is entirely dedicated to beautiful Christmas photographs, paintings and illustrations. Colorful Christmas decorations,
      Don't know where the tutorial fits in, but we liked this painting. Unfortunately Yassine didn't give credits to the images he captured. Shame on him.
