    thanks heritagefutures and michelle!
    the old fugi does pretty good for black and whites. i must say i was a little disappointed to find my pentax 110d does not shoot in black and white. i always have a bear of a time converting them from color to b/w to my satisfaction.

    If you Photoshop CS2 or 3 or whatever they are up to now try this site

    I always shoot mine in color, then hit desaturated in photoshop, then tweak the levels.

    Is this film?

    lately i have been using photoshop elements 4. it's much quicker to load, and has the basic tools i need.
    this is digital. i haven't done an analog ttv in a long while. :) i desaturate with the pentax too, but mess with things quite a bit to get any kind of depth out of it. but my fugi finepix has a black and white shooting mode. works pretty darn good. i did tweak levels on this.

    All my b&w work, unless shot in medium-format on film, is converted in the digital darkroom...you mat wish to consider not using de-saturation but the gradient map (under Image > Adjustments>) has a better conversion..or use SilverEfexPro

    I'm a Lightroom guy (thanks to rustman telling me to check it out). Raw opens right up in it (at least I think I'm working on the raw file the whole time). And it's got great selective color controls which make it really easy to get what you want from your black and white.

    i tried the gradient map conversion, and it works well. it was fun playing with all the other gradient combinations in there.
    i have yet to try lightroom, but i know lots of folks who swear by it.
    thanks for the tips guys...
