I have converted a color image into B&W using Lightroom. I need to adjust the amount of color used for this conversion.
Is it possible to visualize the areas of the image concerned by each slider of the "Black & White Mix" panel ?
Once the image is converted to B&W, that isn't as easy as it seems... I have been doing this conversion by error and trial. I also use a lot the history of Lightroom as a before/after viewer to see if I'm going in the right direction
EDIT : I also use the "color picker" tool. My problem isn't to select the right color, but to know in advance which pixels are going to be affected by a change in a single color slider.
With the original color image, Photoshop can be used to do it using "Select > Color Range" and you can precisely see where each color is.
But when it comes to the actual B&W conversion, even photoshop isn't more helpful.
Such a feature is probably not very helpful for a B&W conversion, seeing the effect of each slider is probably what work best. But I'm curious to know if that is feasible.
