        There can not be, because noone has your image.

        It's all about the starting point. If you post your image and example of what you would like it to look like, we might be able to help you.

          Not a video but this should offer some insight in using channel mixer plus other methods to produce B&W

But those two are...

            Using Channel Mixer Effectively
            by abdul10000
