Anyone know of an easy way to convert a color illustration to a black and white? And I mean black and white, not grayscale.

I don't understand what you mean by not grayscale. Black and White is relative to the contrast between the colors, and that is exactly what a gray scaled image does. To get a black and white illustration without using grayscale you'd have to draw each element in Black or white.

There was an option back in Photoshop 5.5 to adjust color pallet to 2 color or something like that.

Worked great for two color screen printing. Home made Short Snout shirts in the making?

iammatt....first understand I know nothing about graphics, etc. I just need to take an image I have that is currently in color and convert it to black and white only.

I'm looking at getting the logo lasered on some wooden boxes. Not sure it's gonna work, but I need a b+w to see.

I know what you are trying to do. In photoshop you can use the "Threshold" adjustment under IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS (results are not that great) or you can set your foreground color to black then go into the Filter Gallery in PS and use any of the "Sketch" filters.

Let me know if you need more help.

Or...the cheap, easy, and not too fancy way is to open the file in 'Paint' and save it as a monochrome bitmap.

No thresholding options though...but quick and available on every PC.

Reason: spelling...I'm a moron

Awesome Logo, and now I understand what you're trying to do. However, I am not sure on the process of getting something burnt onto wood. Let me do some googling to see if I can learn anything real quick, and get back to ya.
