what do u mean by effects properties? black and white turns it to black and white, and that's it :)

you can further develop the contrast, levels, or colourise, but they are extra effects.

i think that may be the answer Richard. i think what i meant by properties is being able to increase how dark it becomes and or how light it becomes. what other effects would i use for this?

Thanks,

Liam :)

If you want to control how much of the image becomes black, apply 'levels' BEFORE the 'black and white' effect.

If you want to control how light/dark the "black" and "white" become, apply levels AFTER the b&weffect and tweak the output range.

I suggest not using the B/W filter at all. It is just on or off with no control.

Instead use the Color Balance (HLS) effect (in the Image control folder). It gives you much better control all in one filter. You can lower saturation to -100 for pure B/W or somewhere in between for a more subtle effect. There is a lightness slider and hue slider for tweaks to the effect.
