I have a Nikon D70 and Photoshop 7, and have been spending a lot of time trying to tweak into b&w some pictures I've taken of the kids. A few questions for you guys: 1. Should I capture the photos in RAW or JPEG, or does it make a difference if I'm doing post-processing? 2. To convert to b&w, I've been going into PS, converting to greyscale, and then playing around with the curves function. Are there any tips to finding a good tonal curve or is it just a matter of seeing what I like? 3. I read there are some plug-ins for PS that are exclusively for converting to b&w -- are these just custom curves or do they do other things? 4. Is it okay to give a JPEG greyscale image to the print shop or should I be saving it in another format? Thanks!
