We use the Black to White Pro from image ready. Allows you to adjust the image to simulate real film. It has presettings that emulate different types of film, like Kodak, Ilford etc

I've actually bought Fred Miranda's plugin - very useful and easy to use.

I've seen the Coloriage Plugin - click!

They desaturate a part of the image. Other areas keep untouched. No need to select the areas to be desaturated precisely.

Selective desaturation allows highlighting key points and see the photo in a different way.

I'd like to convert some of my colour photos to black and white, just to see what they look like...

Can anyone recommend a free/inexpensive action for Photoshop, or a standalone program?

I've found this technique:

Create them yourself -->> Open your image in Photoshop - go to window/action to open your actions pallette and then click new action icon at the bottom to the left of the trash can icon - choose a name for your action and where to file it... Don't forget to choose a function key! Later you just press this button to have it happen. Use your channel mixer (go to image/adjustments/channel mixer) with the monochromatic button checked and then make three to six actions (repeat this process) with variations on the red blue and green filter sliders... I predominately use a medium red - low green & medium low blue mix... Use the blue channel to enhance contrast and shadows...

You can also try the Fred Miranda website which has quite a few reasonably priced plug-ins for different tasks:
