I guess that I must have missed something or got caught up in a fantasy
post.  As I read the original post from Shunith, he was going to scan
the image (not clear what sized the original negative was), make some
alterations, and output it as a digital file to someone in New York who
would be arranging for the reproduction of the graphic file as an
unknown quantity of publicity prints.  It was also unknown how (by what
method) the graphic file would be reproduced in New York by the person
he was sending the file to.  He also asked if this person should give
the file to a service bureau to print or do it herself.  This indicates
to me that it could be open to being reproduced by any one of a number
of different methods: via inkjet or laser printer, via Lightjet or
Chromira type printers, or via an offset press directly from the digital

Am I reading non-existent sentences; or are the responders skimming over
the information in the original post and answering what they assume the
case is and what is being asked.  While advice may be gratefully
accepted by Shunith, he did NOT ask how to convert the file from RGB to
grayscale but he DID ask If he should convert the file.  Similarly he
did not say that he was doing the printing of the files but that he was
sending them to a friend who lives in New York who will get the files
reproduced by some unknown method.
