black & white question for photographers

posted on 25th of august, 2007

I have found photos that I want to purchase based on their composition.

My friend prefers black & white. I'm finding few b & w that will fit her needs, and we need more photos.
I know I can take color photos and grayscale them, but it's not really the same.

Any advice so that I don't completely mess up great quality photos? This is for website work, and the photos will be fairly small (~500 pixels wide and smaller), so the resolution won't need to be perfect.

I have Photoshop, and a few other image editors.

Thank you very much Hobbyink, I knew there was something I was missing; and it must be the color filters. I will try playing with those.

Thank you for the advice.
