First of all, open a new or existing Word document. If the picture is not already embedded in the file, you need to insert it. For this, click the ‘Insert’ tab and then choose ‘Picture’.
A new window will appear in front of you, asking you to browse the picture that you want to insert to the document. After reaching the location, double-click on the picture to add it to the Word page. You will now find a new pink tab right at the top of the screen.
Now you are supposed to select the picture. A simple click on the face of the picture will do this for you. A border will start appearing all around the picture, once it is selected. It is the time to click the pink ‘Picture Tools’ tab. After that, you are required to push the ‘Recolor’ button that you will see on the left side of the pink ribbon.
The final step is to just choose the ‘Black and White’ option. This will turn the image colourless. Quickly save the document in order to avoid any data loss. Now you can easily print the image in black and white.
For more clarity, you can choose “grayscale” option. Grayscale is also black and white image, but with more sharpness. The digital designers always use this colour. Microsoft Word also offers this option, and you will find the ‘grayscale’ option right under the ‘Black and White’.
