      What is the best way to convert an original, color image to B&W and retain the color image?

          Your original color image is never modified ... Lightroom never modifies the image portion of your original photos. So you can always get back to the color version if you want.

           

          One way to do this is to create a virtual copy of the color image (select the image and then ctrl-apostrophe), and then convert the virtual copy to B&W, although you could also use a snapshot, or even convert theoriginal to B&W knowing you can always get back to the color image.
