To create a luminance version of an image.
If you use image processing application just convert the image to levels of grey.
If you want to do it programmatically, then you have to compute the luminance value of each pixel by weighting its red green and blue values.
The coefficients are something like Rc=0.33, Gc=0.56, Bc=0,11.
Then Y = Rc x red + Gc x green + Bc x blue.
