Advice for aq newbie

Posted: Thu Feb 12, 2004 2:37 pm
I was given a fresh copy of PS7 for Christmas, and am attemping to scan, correct, and even transfer many of the images from color to a true type Black and White format.
Can anyone point me to an easy to use Black and White plugin? Free preferred, or is there a simple technique to change a color image to Black and White.
Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks 8)

There are a lot of plugins that turn color images into B/W. For a free one have a look e.g. at the Xero Plugins at
