35. Click Options > Color/B&W Setup. The only change from the defaults is to choose "Black & White Only" in the Posterization drop down menu. This is the reason I like to work with grayscale images in Streamline ... it's easy.

36. Click Options > Conversion Setup. The only change from the defaults is to place a check mark only in the Centerline checkbox in the "Methods" box in the Conversion section of the dialog.
