    What method of B&W conversion are you using ?

    If you're after the extreme-contrast Ansel Adams type-look, try using the Color Channels Mixer, set to monochrome, and heavily bias it towards one color. Experiment and see how each channel contributes to an image.

    I used a technique from this site http://194.100.88.243/petteri/pont/How_to/n_Digital_BW/n_Digital_BW/a_Digital_Black_and_White.html

    I tend to use it 9 times outta 10 -- but I'll give that method you described in the next set of pics I work threw -- took over 80 today still working

    I'll do my best since that page is still down - no clue whats up with it, worked for months and the second I post a link it dies.

    1.) I use a 10D finisher (sharpening) action script and tweak to likeness (still in color at this point).

    2.) In the layers tool bar I open a new adjustment layer for hue/saturation, close it and in the properties of it assign it "color" (important you make no adjustments to this layer yet)

    3.) another adjustment layer, same thing Hue/saturation, except in this one desaturate it fully -- hit ok -- image should be b/w now

    4.) back to the first hue/saturation layer with the "color" assignment. and adjust the hue and saturation levels until you happy with the desired effect.

    Flatten the image

    this is where I would use the action scripts available on that now dead page.

    and since that page is dead heres the action file

    http://home.comcast.net/~cbpittman/bw-actions.atn -- just right click save as --- I'm not gonna go into how you install an action script.

    Hopefully this all makes sense
