Change Black & White Image To Any Color The Easy Way

Sometimes we need to change black & white image to other color the easy way without need to remove the black first. For example, in this sample image of the classic VW Buggy, the original image is black & white jpeg image, so the idea is to change the VW Buggy from boring black to any other color of your choice, for your poster design let say.

Make It Solid Black Bitmap Image

First of all, you need to change the source to solid Bitmap Image. So open Adobe Photoshop..
→ set the image to Greyscale (to make sure its only black & white)
→ then convert to Bitmap (to make every pixel of the image is solid black pixel - Mono)
Save it to .PSD (.TIF, or .BMP also can)

  5. Sometimes it's necessary to quickly and simply change the color of a black-and-white photograph without having to deal with the inconvenience of erasing the black first. Consider this example photo of the vintage VW Buggy. The aim is to convert the original black-and-white JPEG image of the VW Buggy to any other color of your choosing, which would be ideal for a poster design, for example. This technique not only offers a splash of color, but it also gives designers creative freedom to alter pictures to suit different design concepts.
