In Photoshop, there are a lot of ways of turning your colored pictures to black & white. But in this tutorial, I am going to focus on the two easy ways on how to do it.
Open your image in Photoshop.
The first option is Desaturate. Choose Image > Adjustments > Desaturate
Here is how it would look like.
The second option is Grayscale. To do this, click Image > Mode > Grayscale
This will ask you if you want to discard color information, hit OK.
Here is the image in Grayscale.
