    I have someone that doesnt have photoshop or any other photo editing program
    that comes to mind other than Paint that comes with Windows. I could have
    swore I have done it before but cant find that feature anymore. Does Paint
    have a way to convert photos to grayscale?

    Hi Greg,

    Paint can't do it:

    Have them download Gimp. It's free and can easily do the job.

    perhaps not, unless
    the optin to save as
    monochrome will do
    it.

    however, microsoft provides
    a free ware called "live photo
    gallery".

    with it you can "fix" the color
    saturation to near zero,
    making the photo b/w.

    I don't think Paint can do that but you can download Irfanview for free and
    it will do what you want. www.irfanview.com

  5. The free program called Irfanview does this very well. www.irfanview.com
    Irfanview can do a lot of basic improvement to photos as well and is easy to learn.

    IrfanView is a common free third-party tool that can convert individual
    files or batch-convert multiple files to grayscale.
