Creating Black and White Images with Movavi Photo Noir

Black and white images have a unique aesthetic appeal that is often hard to define and is explained as being ‘elegant’, ‘classic’ or ‘timeless’. In actual fact the appeal of black and white images extends beyond that, and is tied to the fact that it eliminates the distractions of color and distills images to its basic shapes and forms while framing it in hues and tones that emphasize both the light and dark areas.

If you would like to experiment with and create black and white images of your own, Movavi Photo Noir presents a unique opportunity to do so. It is a specialized software that is designed specifically to help make a picture black and white while emphasizing its most interesting facets.

If you would like to have more control over the exact tone of your black and white image, Movavi Photo Noir will let you adjust and refine the brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, exposure, shadows, highlights, tint, and various other parameters further using simple sliders as seen in above image. It is possible to save these refinements as additional presets in case you want to use them in the future.

Another interesting touch that is possible with Movavi Photo Noir is the ability to add a ‘splash’ of color. Basically what that means is that you can restore the color to an element or area of your image, creating a unique effect that causes that detail to stand out against the black and white backdrop. Aside from that it is also possible to crop, rotate, or straighten the frame of your image, in case you want to adjust the composition slightly.
