The safest option

Your alternative course of action is to do exactly what the printer expects - print your black-and-white photos with black ink only. If you do this you know they’ll look a bit weak, but you’ll also know that they can’t possibly have any colour cast.

As I said a few slides ago, the old-fashioned “Grayscale mode” is darned unreliable. It really isn’t compatible with modern workflows, and can too easily convert to CMYK without you noticing.

But we can prevent that risk. I’ve made another profile that uses CMYK mode, but with absolutely no C M or Y. You can download it here: Damien’s black-and-white K only.icc

Again, once it has downloaded you can double-click it to install on your system.
