  1. Thanks, Colin — Also, a slight bump (either way, as desired) with the Dehaze slider can sometimes serve as a final touch! 🙂

  2. Hi Colin,
    Nope! I’ve never used the Temp and Tint sliders for Blk and Wht! I will now … Thanks for the Tip.

  3. Thanks Colin, I had noticed the temp and tint sliders were “available” but hadn’t thought to try them in B&W! Thanks, cool tip!

  4. Great tip. I never thought of using the color sliders. Also using the color picker icon for idividual colors is sosmart.

  5. Thanx for the excellent little tutorial Colin. Tint and Temperature sliders are something I’m assuming most, if not all of us would not have given a second thought to in editing for black & white photography. What great tools!

  6. Will this work in CS6 camera raw?
    Also does the button exist for clicking on a colour and then altering the B&W tone by dragging left or right?

  7. Taking a B&W class now and will definitely try the temp and tint sliders. Thanks for the great tips.
