To make a black / white image

Here I will try to explain how I've worked up the image “Sabina at post”.
There are many ways and variations to work with an image. But here I have done.

Creates a new adjustment layer (along the bottom of the layers palette) – Hue / Saturation.
Pull down the lever of the master to – 100 photos are black / white. Change master to the red channel and use the slider brightness to change how the red looks in the picture. Continue with all the other channels the same until you are satisfied.

Create a new adjustment layer – levels. Rename it to the jacket.
Now set the levels until you think the jacket looks good, just look at how the jacket looks . The second is not interesting now. Press Ctrl and then I invert the layer mask to black. Now select the brush tool and brush out the adjustments you've made to the jacket. When I do this I enlarge the image to be very large as it helps when I'm working with the. Try using different sizes of brush and soft or hard brush. When I take the edges I use a small stiff brush. We now look at the layer mask to make it white where I have brushed.

Create a – new layer (At the bottom of the layers palette to the left). Rename to Burn. Here I want to darken the two bright areas on the far right between the trees. Click the Edit, filling stock, in the box that appears, select Use 50% gray click ok. Now we can see that the layer mask is gray and the picture was gray. Above the gray layer's blend mode, where it is normal, change to soft light. Now you see the image again. Select the Burn tool and a soft brush, select a suitable size and select area to highlight and exposure 5 %. Again I enlarge the image to facilitate the work. Brush now where you want by highlighting, now you see the result directly on the image, and it is also visible on the layer mask. Also try – area changed to midtones. That I Burns in this way is that it is not destructive to the image. One can make a new layer in the same way and then use the tool - shadow if you think it necessary light up anywhere on the image.

Create a - new stock. Rename the clone.
Now select the clone stamp tool and remove anything that you do not want in the picture. For example reflections, sticks that disturbs and all other stuff. Use a soft brush and choose a suitable size, normal mode, opacity 100 %, Do not forget to check the boxes – adjust and try all stock. Try also to change the opacity. One can also use the tool - Spot Healing Brush, Do not forget to check the box to try all layers and content aware.

Now I create a merged layer by pressing - shift, Ctrl, Alt and E. Rename to brusredosering. Now if you need ready sera noise.
Click filter, noise, reduce noise. Try it out here until you're satisfied, click ok.
The advantage of working in layers like this is that you can go back and adjust afterwards. But it must be done before adding the final merged layer where I presented a total noise. Should I do it after the merged layer is made with brusredosering get delete it and do it after the adjustments. Then the merged layer affects all layers.
If you want to make an adjustment so select the layer that you want to change. At the top of the Layers palette to the left it says - stock and adjustments, click adjustments and you can now make your changes in the levels and it will be just the area you have brushed up before it changed in. Click stock when finished. Then add a brusredoseringslager described before.
Click on the archive and save as. Then save the image in TIFF or Photoshop.
