Allright, so here's the good workaround. There's no way to find b&w photos, but you can make a "smart collection". And there is choice for colorspace. I had to choose "grayscale" for tiff files and "Linear Raw" for dng files. See settings of my fiter: And voila! all and only b&w files you see!


There's a Mac program called Deep by Ironic Software that will search for colors.

Another long-shot would be to check the colour depth as 16 bit to 32 bit conversions can further affect results. If you are using ...


There is one advantage with two big "Ifs". If you are sure that what you do in-camera meets your artistic vision satisfactorily without the need to later shift the relation in grey tonal values between objects of different colors: If you are saving the images as JEPG only files: Then saving the jpegs in B&W will significantly reduce the file size of ...
