Pure Black and White converter (NOT grayscale)

Or the Threshold plugin for more control...


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Tried moving contrast all the way up and then tried the blackandwhite plugin.


When saving image as a jpg I get 4 colors and not 2 (when I open image in XnView and count colors used).

any ideas?


Ideally I want an image that is just monchrome black and white only.  I'm using an image as a template and would like to be able to just use the fill tool to color spots in.  Need the white area to be completely white.

It may be the jpg encoding that is applied when it saves. Jpg is a lossy format so it doesn't 100% faithfully adhere to the original image colors.

Try saving it as a PNG.
