Needs Improvement Mondaychild 2013-03-10 9:13

Hello Muthusamy,

you wrote "... my first B/W conversion ..."
I can´t see anything in this photo that was converted to B/W! Or did you just convert the color of the dress?

What did you do with the background? It´s clearly visible that you cut out the lady and placed it on a black background. Why?

Furthermore, the photo lacks of sharpness.

I´m sure you can do better!

Hello Ms.Gisi,

Thank you for the concern and comments.

What I wanted to communicate is "... my first B/W conversion ..." (my first attempt in converting a color picture into B/W)

Step 1: I have opened the picture in Irfanview. Converted the same into grey scale using image menu.

Step 2: Cut the picture from its background

Step 3: Superimposed on a Black background.

Photo lacks sharpness. Could you guide the ways and means of improving the picture. Guide me the best procedure to convert from color to B/W. I hope I will be much benefited from your guidance and the same will help me to improve my future uploads.
