As sophomoric as this question seems, how should I save plots in grayscale in Mathematica?
I generally like eps images for their scalability and I use ghostscript or other third party perl scripts to convert my images to grayscale.
One way would be to use
For 2D plots that accept a
Typically, these grayscale plots are useful when submitting to journals that charge exorbitant prices just to print in colour. However, just a note of caution that discerning different shades of gray is not easy. For the most effect, it is recommended (at least in the journals I publish in), that you also change the line type for your different curves (and not more than 4 curves/plot). You should also choose the colours (or colourscale, for 2D surface plots) wisely so that they convert well to grayscale. For example:
One way would be to roll your own color functions. For continuous use:
For discrete plots:
