Taking Black and White Photos with a Digital Camera

How do you take a black and white picture with a digital camera?

Some cameras offer the option in the menu. If yours does not, then you have to manipulate it to remove the color in your computer. If you do not have software to do so (it often comes with the camera), you can download Picasa for free from Google. It is really a nice program (recommended to me in a photography class), and not hard to use. Just be aware that the first time you run it on your computer, it will catalog all the photos stored on your computer, so it may take a bit of time. (The cataloging is nice, it will catalog them in chronological order, using the electronic time stamp digital cameras have.)

Check your camera instructions. Piknik is also a great site for working with digital pictures, including making them b/w from color shots, adding focal color to b/w, etc. (see pix for example).
