GIMP 2.10 Black and White Photo Editing Tutorial

In this tutorial, I show you how to edit black and white photos using the free photo editing program GIMP 2.10.8. I go over the basics to editing black and white photos (a.k.a. grayscale photos), including what elements to look for when taking your photos or selecting a photo from your camera, and what tools to use when editing desaturated photos. Black and white photography skills are a must for any photographer’s arsenal!

This tutorial is beginner friendly, though it is thorough enough to be useful for experienced photo retouchers or GIMP users.
