Hi , I was just wondering if there's a difference between B/W and monochrome. Could it be that monochrome is a bit mor silvery ? If there's a difference how can I get this look in photoshop ?

Hi Bart, strictly speaking, monochrome means a picture made with shades of a single colour. If that colour were white, then you'd have shades of grey, making a black and white image. But you could equally have shades of green, blue, pink or any other colour...

So black and white is monochrome, but monochrome isn't necessarily black and white!

There's tons of effects you can do with Photoshop where you can choose what these colours are. There's also two colour effects called duotones for example, and others which allow three colours and so on...

Search for duotones in Photoshop's help for more details...

See an example of a non-b/w monochrome here:
