not all pics convert well to black and white, thats the first thing to realise.

there are a few ways to convert, using channel mixer and ticking monochrome isprobably the easiest, u can adjust sliders to get the effect u want

there is a plugin by alien skin called exposure.....i use that it replicates black and white films and works very well

You can simply desaturate the image but the seldom gives you good results. I often use the channel mixer. This free plug in works well and gives some interesting results though the previews area is small.

Feel free to look around my digital darkroom and download anything that looks useful.

Cheers,
