Eye Candy 4000 check..... any places I can download it from?

There is something there called D&W Black & White. Takes a color image & properly converts it so it appears to have been B&W from the start. More so than you would get from the Image>B&W or Desaturate.
But there's a ton of cool stuff on there all for free.
Wow thanks guys!
You lose some contrast & values. Taking a color image and making it B&W looks much flatter than running it through that filter.
None. learn how to use the application and you wont need any worthless filters.
there better ways of B&W than any plug in will give you, once you understand the idea.
go to image - adjustments - channel mixer - monochrome and adjust the levels of red green and blue speratly. every sensor records color wave lengths differently, so to say that a plugin is better than another is retarded.
Thanks.... I've been using photoshop for over 7 years now, started out with v.4.0 but I thought it would be fun to experiment with other options is that a problem?
If you learn how to use your tools you don't need plugin's
do a google on "photoshop Actions"
there's some interesting stuff to try, but sometimes it's better to do it manually than using the action.
Totaly agree with this, filters and plug ins can become a real trap.
There are many good shots ruined by applying innapropriate filters when a simple curve adjustment would have been better.
As a general rule I try and use as few layers as possible to get the result I want as each layer degrades the information in the original file.
