Black and White

Announcing the triumphant return of the Android Central weekly photo contest! Everyone here in the office is home for at least a week, and as far as we know nobody is leaving to cover any events until CTIA in San Diego. That means we have time to sit back and enjoy the pictures you guys take with your Android phones and tablets.

Kicking it back off in style this week, we're going to focus on black and white pictures. They can be pictures of anything almost anything, so long as they are in black and white and taken from an Android device.

Now I'm sure someone is asking, how the heck do I get black and white pictures from my color camera?!? Easy as pie. Look in the settings of your camera app first, a lot of devices have a B&W mode built in. If there's nothing there, long press a picture in the gallery and look for an edit option. Finally, you can use any of the great free photo editing apps from Google Play -- I'm digging PicsArt's new update -- or do it on your computer.

Once you have the picture, head into the Android contest forums and share it with the world. We'll look through all the entries, and pic out the best five. Those winners will get an Android Central t-shirt, which instantly makes you the coolest person in any room. Read the forums post for any particulars, and get off the couch and take some pics!
