    Grayscale question

    Mr. Benrud
      Hello All,

      Is there a way to undo the grayscale command once a project has been saved and closed?

      My students had to create a concert poster and save it. Then they were supposed to convert it to grayscale and save it as poster_gray. Unfortunately, I have two students that didn’t change the file name when they saved their work and now they don’t have a color version of their poster. When I open the file and select a vector object I can still see the fill/stroke colors on the properties panel but the image is grayscale.

      Is there a way to convert it back to the color version?

      Thank,
      Mr. Benrud

          Did they convert it togreyscale using the Properties Panel Live Filter
          Hue/Saturation?
          If so they can just delete that applied filter or bring the Saturation
          slider back up a value of 0.

            They used Command, creative, convert to grayscale

              In that case there is no turning back - short of a backup.

                Never mind !....

                Look in your Properties panel. Delete or uncheck the Hue/Saturation filter.

                  The convert to grayscale command uses the Hue/Saturation Live Effect,
                  so you just need to uncheck or delete the Live Effect from the
                  Properties Panel.
