How to create a template for B&W pictures?
Select the shape layer where you want a B&W picture, CTRL+click on the mask and you will get a selection with the same size and form as the shape layer. Now select the Tone and saturation adjustment layer at bottom of the layers palette, slide saturation to 0. Next time you insert a picture in this shape it will be a B&W picture.
Remember to select the adjustment layer with the shape layer when resizing or rotating the shape layer.
You may add any kind of adjustment layer in this way, a sepia toning layer or a curves layer. You may also create a partial desaturation layer for mixing B&W and color in the same picture, just create a tone and saturation layer and paint with black at the new adjustment layer mask; the black areas will be colored areas.
