You just described me in front of my computer on a Tuesday night:-)

I had actually submitted one that I thought was great.. only to realize that the object pictured was more or less colorless in reality.. so I swapped the entries. Only time will tell if I made a mistake:-)

I have had several ideas, but decided it isn't worth it this week. I will also just look at the pics to see what folks came up with, swear and say "Why didn't I think of that?" then I will vote. Good luck to everybody. It should be interesting.

I'm stumped on this one... I think I will just vote and comment them all, or try to at least! Well happy posting to all...

Not only can you -- you must convert it somehow. A simple desaturate or convert will do, but there are other ways that give you more control. Read on...

Using ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Bvy's tips I spent 5 minutes using the channel mixer to turn this;
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/50000-54999/53964/120/676880.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/50000-54999/53964/120/676880.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

into this;
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/50000-54999/53964/120/722589.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/50000-54999/53964/120/722589.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I really like the way it gave me more control in bringing out the markings on the apples. Thanks for the hints :)

so the "b&w" adjustment layer in CS3 is acceptable or no?


I'm not a CS3 user, but I would say "yes" as long as it's applied in Normal mode.

A simple desaturate or convert to black and white or the equivalent will do. For more control, you can split the channels (red, green and blue) with a channel mixer layer, and vary the intensity of each channel. General rule is that all three channels should add up to 100%. It's an oft broken rule, of course, but a good starting point. Also remember that the blue channel typically has the most noise, the green channel the least.
