Morning chaps & chapesses
I want to turn about 10 photos into black and whites to do something with on a wall at home.

I'm on office 2010 but there's no option to do that unless I start playing with hues etc (I thought there would be a B&W button!).

Do I get the option to do this when I go print them out from the machines @ Kmart or something? I( thought I'd have a play first ... planning to have them about A4 size with simple content
thanks in advance

Converting porn to art Ozee?  You know, "if it's B/W it's art - if it's coloured it's porn".

In sepia it's antique.

There are many ways to convert to BW, and just desaturating the colors doesn't necessarily make for the best picture.  Most dedicated photo suites have options.

I got one that is looking quite odd - I had such a tanned face I looked orange in the colour version :(

That sounds like a white balance problem.  You can fix it without taking all the colour out.
