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.

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

As is the gradient map layer.

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 :)

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...

I could take a b&w pic of my hair but those who don't really know me wouldn't get it, hehe. I have a lot of ideas for this but some good ones for Bummer too, I'm a bit torn.
