If you want to give the object of your image a nice metal (in B/W, this is also provided that the object in question is a metal or would, in your opinion, look good if it had a metallic effect)) look follow the following steps:

-Open your image in Photoshop
-Go to Image -> Adjustments -> Desaturate.
This is the destaurated image that you will give the effect to.
-Go to Image -> Adjustments -> Color Balance

A window will pop up with 3 sliders and 3 colours on either side of the slider.
The second slider bar has Green to the right.... drag the slider slightly towards it.
The third slider bar has Yellow to the left....drag the slider slightly towards it.

And there you go!......your object should have gotten a nice metal look. You can fiddle around with the concetration of Green and yellow but it's unadvisable to go beyond -20 (in the case of Yellow) or +20 (in case of the Green)

That's clever, will it only work this way with images that have been desaturated?

A few conditions, for example, serious kidney sickness, may keep you from being given separate. In the event that you have a past filled with kidney effluence or liver move, it will be imperative to play out a plasma test to decide if the offal are waged enough.
