In today's world, it seems as though a movie or picture has to be in color to be cool. The famous black-and-white photographer Ansel Adams would definitely beg to differ , and if you've seen a Federico Fellini film, you would never agree to let it be colorized .

Black-and-white films and pictures have their place in the entertainment world, and Movie Maker offers a special effect labeled Grayscale that enables you to convert pictures and video clips to grayscale . You can age a scene by converting it to grayscale without adding the graininess that Movie Maker's Film Age special effects create.
