Adobe Photoshop

Open your image in Adobe Photoshop.

Select Image>Adjustments>Channel Mixer.

In the Channel Mixer box, check the Monochrome option. Start adjusting the sliders one by one until you create a pleasing combination of color channels, making sure the sum of all three channels equals 100. (If you have skin tones in your photo, you may want to adjust the Red channel a little more aggressively.)
