I've heard of using only one channel's image information (R, G, or B) to get a better result than just converting to grayscale and playing from there. I haven't had a chance to play with any of it much.

There's a good article in the August issue of Professional Photographer . Available through PPofA. Or just borrow a copy from a member. Mine's out on loan right now.

Scott,
Go to www.russellbrown.com and go to his tips and techniques. He explains the different ways to convert to black & white and finally gives his own way, which is awesome. I think this will be a great help to you.

I do it the amateur's way, use an action [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I have 4 actions that I really like, if you send me an email at brh@comcast.net I'll send them to you. One is called DMAX which you can probably find anywhere and the others are part of a larger set (forget what it's called)
