Is there a free program out there to be able to batch edit color to B&W ?

What in your experiences have been the best program for converting to B&W ?

I currently use Picasa but don't really like the faded out look it gives.

for me personally i much prefer to do each photo individually

and there are so many ways to convert to black and white

each has its own benefits

desaturate is the easiest but not the best, most programs can do that

there are some good tutorials on the net

It's not free if you like it, but you can download a 30 free trial of Lightroom. That will do batch conversions, and it's very easy to adjust contrast etc. with it - worth checking out.

mtngal I was looking at getting light room today but the guy did not have it and I will have to wait until next week.



Gumnut thanks I have not tried to desaturate yet.
