Black & White
Are there any good Photoshop Plugins that will let me make my color photos into black and white photos?

Don't need no plugins! In layer pallete press adjustment layer icon and choose Channel Mixer. Mark "monochrome" checkbox and play with sliders, trying to keep the total at 100% (you don't have to if you don't want to). You may want to convert your image to grayscale later.

nik Color-Efx is a FANTASTIC plug-in package! It isn't cheap, but I have used it so much it more than pays for itself. It has a great black & white plug-in that lets you switch to b&w while simulating various colored filters just like you'd use in real b&w photography plus lots of other really useful plug-ins (filters they call them)...gray grads, blue grads, etc. I think their website has some trials...don't remember the exact web address but the company is nik Multimedia...any search should bring them up.
