[filmscanners] RE: B&W from Color

There are several good techniques with Photoshop. Here are two advanced
techniques that are my favorites:

Caponigro's technique of creating individual layers from each color channel.
This works well. He has an action posted on this page as well.

Here is a compendium of several techniques:


The "Russell Brown Patented Technique" is by far the most fun in my
experience. You can make an action out of it.

Photoshop makes it almost unnecessary to shoot B&W anymore...

Subject: [filmscanners] B&W from Color

Is anyone on the list using any special tools for converting color images to
black and white? I've heard of work flows where you convert to LAB space and
throw away the A and B. I'm looking for a plug-in or stand alone program
that converts the image in a specific way.

Any ideas are appreciated!
