Elizabeth delves into the wonderful flexibility found in Gradient Map adjustment layers, showing you how you can use the Gradient Editor to create black and white images and photos with a warm-toned look.
If you’re looking for more info on using the Gradient Editor, be sure to check out Diana Day’s Grasping the Gradient Tool article, from the May/June 2011 issue of Photoshop Elements Techniques. (The Gradient tool and the Gradient Map adjustment layer share the same editor.)
To see more about black and white conversions using Gradient Map adjustment layers, look at Ben Long’s Strategies for Better Black and White Photos, from the March/April 2009 issue.
[In Elements 7 and earlier, if you want to edit a gradient map, double-click on the layer's icon in the Layers palette. That will open the Gradient Editor.]
