Free Photoshop Action to Turn Photos into Black and White

Today I’ve decided to offer a free black & white Photoshop Action. This one that I have created turns color photos into black and white photos.

It is an easy-to-use action that instantly turns color pictures into stunning black and whites. See the example below.

What is a Photoshop Action

If you don’t know what a Photoshop Action is, you are missing out! Once you add or create an action in Photoshop you can just run that action without doing all of the steps manually. A Photoshop Action lets users run a set of procedures that can be reused to edit an image in a particular way.

How to Add an Action to Photoshop

Adding an action is easy. The first step is to click on the 4 lines on the Actions window in Photoshop.

Next, a window like the image below will appear. All you have to do is click on Load Actions and select the file you want to add. The files end in .atn.

That’s all there is too it! The next time you open Photoshop, the newly added action will still be there.
