How to take Black and White Photos on a Samsung Galaxy S2

We all know that for some reason black and white photography is more "artsy". Whether it's emo's trying to look cool or a photographer trying to add an effect that always seems to look black and white is...the new colour. If you've a brand new Samsung Galaxy S2 taking photos in black and white is simple but brilliant.

Firstly you need to open up the Camera application and then open the settings for the camera (click on the cog icon in the bottom left corner). Inside the settings menu you need to find the option for "Effects" and then you're screen should look a little something like the one above. In the effects menu you need to select the "greyscale" option.

After selecting "greyscale" you'll notice the colour vanishes from the screen and you'll see images in "black and white". If you then take a photo you'll have taken a black and white photograph and seemed all intelligent and arty, just take a look at the two pictures below and admit the black and white one looks more "arty".
