The kitties are already B&W and nobody seems to be heartbroken....so I don't know if it still meets the requirements.

A few of the pupsters:

Prince, 5 years old. GSD/Husky mix (although his papers said Malamute I'm not sure) Got him from the SPCA when he was 2 months old. What a fluffball he was



Lily is the newest addition to our family. She was on death row at a pound and we fostered her back in August. We officially adopted her about a month ago. We are foster failures!

What do you think Lily is? We were told Rottie/GSD but we're not fully convinced. She's got her nose to the ground and points a lot. She also runs like a gazelle! Super quick!





Kelti was my bf's family dog who passed over in April 2008.

Such gorgeous pics in this thread! I'm really liking this B&W theme. Almost inspires me to try it.

I use a program called Irfanview, someone here directed me to this site. It's free and you can resize and edit.

Just LOVING these!!! Gonna post some cutie cat pics in the next 24.

http://irfanview.com/ is a good FREE image editing program though not sure how easily you can do BW conversions.

GIMP http://www.gimp.org/ is another FREE POWERFUL image editing program that gives photoshop a run for its money. Here's a gimp BW conversion tutorial
http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Color2BW/

Hope it can help - Marko

IrafanView is a great program for a quick edit, but I would highly recommend looking into Picasa, which is a free photo organizing/editing program from Google. It's got lots of features and effects (including several B&W effects), is very easy to use, and integrates perfectly with Google's free photo album site, Picasaweb. For those on Facebook, there's also a plugin that gives you one-click uploading to your Facebook albums.

And http://picasaweb.google.com for the web albums - login with your Gmail account, if you have one. Also links with Google Maps/Google Earth, so you can geotag your photos with the location they were taken.

http://picasaweb.google.com/soundy106

BTW, Irfanview and Picasa won't do the "selective color" thing like exkalibur's pics... that requires something like Photoshop, GIMP, Paintshop Pro, etc., and a little bit of skill.
