Heres a neat way to use a channel mixer adjustment layer to turn things that are mainly one color black or white.
1. Open your image
2. Create a new channel mixer adjustment layer and check the monchrome check box
3. Set its blend mode to darken(black) or lighten(white)
4. Experiment with the Red, Green and Blue sliders for the effect that you want.

Have Fun!

Good technique. I like using tools to easily and selectively edit without having to spend a lot of time masking or selecting areas. Another good tool for this type of technique is the "selective color" adjuster.

The really nice thing about channel mixer is that it comes with many presets as well as being able to save your own. Some cool stuff to play with. :)

Definitely a tool that gets little mention, yet can be used in so many instances. Thanks for drawing attention to it. :}
