Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
Here is the truth one of them doesn't want you to know
(and more, keep reading):
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

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.
