iPhoto Tip: Changing Pics To Black and White

If you just got the new iLife ‘08 suite and are playing around with iPhoto, here is a tip that will explain how to convert your colored images to black and white. After you import your photo, click on the album and give it a name. Now click on the image you want to edit and make a duplicate copy of the original. Once you select it, it should be surrounded in a golden edge and the image should be in full screen mode. To access the edit bar, roll your mouse over the bottom of the screen and click on effects.Choose from a variety of effects including black and white, sepia, antique, fade color, original, boost color, matte, vignette, or edge blur. According to photographer Mark Kuroda, if you don’t like the desired effect, you can click on original and it’ll cancel out the effects and If you really like the effect, keep clicking the mouse on it to create more layers. Good luck!

I second cassedy04 - if you have Windows and want a free app that does the same thing check out Picasa. It's no Photoshop, but it's free and very user-friendly. http://picasa.google.com/

can i just add that this really reminds me of picasa (google's photo service)?? so if you are a PC user, and want similar controls, check it out - it's a free download!
