Most picture editing software will convert color to B&W, without losing integrity/details. Sometimes it will even bring out details you couldn't see in color.  Then if you also want to keep the unedited color file, use the "save as" command and keep the original filename + BW.  That'll keep the files together in the folder, too.

nah, even I who am not all that savvy about such things, can tell my
printer to make a black and white print out of a colour image.

you might ask the  Cycad Society how they manage, their newsletter is
KILLER DROP DEAD GORGEOUS with colour photos and beautiful layout on
glossy heavy paper. and EVEN I can afford it.
