That link, several posts down, now covers as early as Photoshop 7.0 as well.

Thanks Danny.

Thanks for including the PS7 steps; I noted that above. -djr

Near the end of thread is a link to download some of his actions, including one that applies a custom BW gradient.

Re: Tutorial 05: Converting a Color Image to Black

Most of the time I add some drama and then desat (lame, I know; lol). I also like using photo-plugins b/w filter since it can simulate various passive color filtered lenses (figured out how to get it to work with GIMP; had to rename it in my pspirc file since it had non-standard characters; lol).
