    This noob is lost.


    Hey everyone,

    I am completely new to Photoshop. I have CS 5.1

    I am trying to do something that I thought would be very simple.

    I want to take a comic book cover scanned at 600 dpi and remove all color so that the only thing remaining is the black ink that existed before it was colored. Just black and white. No grayscale.

    So far, it has proven to be impossible for me. If anybody has any tips I would very much appreciate it..

    Use an adjustment layer, you can mask out the image so the threshold would not effect it.

    1. With Threshold adjustment layer mask selected, use the rectangular marquee tool to select the image.

    2. Fill the selection with black.



    Mask basics. White reveals effect; black hides effect; shades of gray are semi-transparent. Masks are in grayscale and transparency is based on brightness value with white being opaque and black being transparent.
