I'm planning to use my T1i - Black and white feature.

Any link how to change from colored to B&W setting. Also do i need to change any setting when its on B&W? Planning to use for Kids and family.

Thanks!

Take the pictures in color, then change them to B&W via photo software after.

Change the picture style to monochrome and you should be good to go.

Change the picture style setting.

Basics, well described in the manual.

you have more leeway if you shoot raw and make them b+w afterwards. If you find a particular style you like you could even record it as a ps action and have it apply it to them all with 2 clicks.

And make sure it's raw for greater bit depth.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Shoot in raw then use ps5's b&w presets.

Theres several ways for making a colour image into B&W in photoshop...

I often throw on the preset greyscale layer for a basic B&W and to set levels etc.

But theres many other ways, channel mixer, desaturate etc.

Do NOT use monochrome it camera its totally awful, it looks like grey soup. Just use presets or greyscale and adjust to your liking. Or a plugin if thats your thing

I agree, shoot in color and then convert to B&W with an image editing program

Shoot raw, pretend there's no such thing as PictureStyles.

Even if you do use the monochrome picture style, if you shoot in RAW you can get the color back later.

Yes, use Raw but set to monochrome so you can check the pictures on the LCD in black and white to see if you like them. In the old days we had to imagine it or use a heavy color filter to make it look sort of monochrome through the viewfinder with B&W film but today you can see what it looks like in monochrome, even in Raw. If you shoot in Raw you can choose to make them color later if you want as well which is nice some days.

On the camera ;)

In the non auto zones you can change it via the menu. you can also edit (change the settings) any picture style right on the camera to your liking. But as others have suggest the image will look better if you take it in color and then convert it later.
