Pets in Black and White

There is something to be said for black and white photos, especially when you add just a touch of color.
I tried this with the photo Impression program I have, I am not really happy with it but I gave it a shot.

Haha, ok so you know I think the pooch is too cute, but is that Pepto on the tongue :p I LOVE black and white pictures :)

I don't think people here will appreciate you giving your doggy bubble gum :) . Just kidding. I love what you did with his eyes! And black and white shows more texture. :)

Nice job! But I think if you go a little lighter on the coloured parts (eyes an tongue) it would look even better (just a subtle amount of colour).

Or at least I think it is better

April 27th, 2005, 08:32 PM
Much better !!! He is such an easy subjest to photograph, being such a photogenic boy :love:

Hmmmm, you've inspired me with these gorgeous photos! I will have to try that touch-of-colour method.

But in the meantime.....

CF, beautiful pic. I like B/W cause you focus more on the subject and not the colours.

LOL, i don't know how!
I did it for you.:p

April 28th, 2005, 03:01 PM
I'm unsure of how to make things in black and white but I tried :) This is our 13 year old Marc :love:

Fabulous pics! JDG, that one is frame-worthy!!

dogglover, that is stunning as well.:) Stampdesigns, what a sweet kitty. I love the older cats.:)

All the pics are great and I'm really enjoying them. Lots of talented people here!

I did this one of Rose, my foster Himi.

I think I'm hooked on the black and white images! This picture is of my parents lhasa apso Lacey. She's so cute, I think she looks even better as black and white!

May 8th, 2005, 10:09 PM
This one is of my Tabby Fez in her cat box. I thought it was cute too.

May 8th, 2005, 11:14 PM
Had to have my boy in this one too!! :D He's pretty in every color (and even in NO color!! LOL)

May 8th, 2005, 11:21 PM
Jemma too!!! ;) (Although not much color is lost...)

May 8th, 2005, 11:27 PM
Wjranch, yes dobies are beautiful in any color!! :)

Here is Boo (can't have one without the other)

I redid it with the color thing...

May 8th, 2005, 11:55 PM
But it isn't really noticable if I do it to Jemma... It's nearly the same.

May 9th, 2005, 10:03 AM
Well, someone doesn't like getting there picture taken. ;)

May 9th, 2005, 10:21 AM
Man Jemma that does not look like your sweet self. LOL What a pretty dog I love that sweet face! :D

May 9th, 2005, 01:49 PM
She's purring from getting a hug... She purrs a lot. :)

May 9th, 2005, 02:29 PM
Beautiful critters!I love black and white shots.

May 9th, 2005, 05:03 PM
Hey-- what program are you guys using to add the color? I just cut and pasted the eyes from the original color pics in Paint. Is there an easier way?

May 9th, 2005, 05:33 PM
I did mine in Photoshop. . . first changing the photo to greyscale, then using layers added the colour. . . .

May 9th, 2005, 08:04 PM
I did mine in microsoft picture came free with my computer. All I did was cut out the colour part turn the rest of the picture grey and then paste the colour part back.
