I have been trying to find a software package that takes color photos and emulates both b/w films and papers. Many years ago I purchased a license that did this from a guy in Europe. I downloaded it and it showed in my Filters for Photoshop Elements or Photoshop. It was on my Powerbook G4 which has gone to that great apple orchard in the sky. I now have an iMac duo core, CS4 and Elements 8. There seems to be something out of the UK but there seems to be no way to buy it.My old product was a plug in and it was fantastic.

Help!

[quote=willothewasp]Why don't you just go into "enhance" , "adjust color", and turn saturation to "zero" or you can "image" , "mode", "greyscale"? David

Thank you but the ability to emulate specific papers, filters and films produces better results.

I haven't seen that much improvement. David
Infra red is kind of cool. I would like to see a before color and special software to b & w. If someone does click "store original" and I and others can mess with it.

if you mean you wanna turn colour into black/white via computer software then my opinion is to get NIK SILVER EFFEX PRO, it has all your requirements.

You have PSE 8, as well as CS4, well, then you have all you need, as either program will do that for you.
If you want presets or something like that, consider plug-ins, like Alien Skin, Tiffen, or the kind.
