The final step in the conversion is to adjust contrast. Black-and-white images
often need a boost in contrast when compared to the same image in color. In the exam-
ple image shown in Figure 4.15, I've increased contrast to 38. The final image, shown
in Figure 4.16, is now ready for conversion. For a strong black-and-white image with
good definition between tones, an increase in the Contrast slider can make a huge dif-
ference in the image.

Increasing the contrast will often
add more depth to a black-and-
