      Personally, I like to change the image mode to Lab Colour, then in the channels click on 'lightness', after that change the image mode to greyscale. I dont know what is happening behind the scenes exactly but the 'lightness' channel gives such a nicer B&W conversion than just converting to Greyscale or desaturating.

          Do one of the following:

          1. Click the Black & White icon in the Adjustments panel.

          2. Choose Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Black & White. In the New Layer dialog box, type a name for the adjustment layer and then click OK.

          Photoshop applies a default grayscale conversion.
