Watch and Learn Photoshop has released another one of their free Photoshop video tutorials. This tutorial describes some nice techniques that you can use to turn your photos to black and white using adjustment layers. These techniques work much better than just desaturating or turning your image to Grayscale mode and the final outcome is much more customizable.
