Lightroom Web Tutorial: How to Easily Create B&W Conversions with Color Toning Effects (VIDEO)

Adobe’s Julieanne Kost calls herself a “Digital Imaging Evangelist” and she’s widely known for her expert Photoshop and Lightroom tutorials. In the three-minute video below she demonstrates how to use Lightroom Web to create beautiful black-and-white conversions with creative toning effects.

For the uninitiated, Lightroom Web is one of three ways that Lightroom CC subscribers can access Lightroom (the other two being on a computer or with a mobile device via Lightroom mobile). While Lightroom Web is the least familiar of the three platforms, it packs a lot of punch and you can read about it here.

For this quick project, Kost demonstrates how to convert a color image to B&W and make a few simple adjustments for a dramatic effect. She then shows how to add color toning to either the shadows, highlights, or both, to come up with a really nice custom conversion.
