Default Difference black & white vs. grayscale settings (Epson 3170)

The Epson Scan software gives the choices of black and white and grayscale
settings. What's the diff b/w these two settings? I've been using grayscale so
far for b&w photos, with good results.

Black and white is exactly that - just black and white with no grey in
between, which is fine for diagrams, drawings and other line art, but
not for photos or other continuous tone media, which require greyscale.

If you had tried this with some black and white photos then the results
you obtained would have been self explanatory, making your question
obsolete.

Ignore the comment about your question being redundant. Apart from
being the wrong word for what the poster means, it is also less than
helpful.

On the contrary - it took him longer just to type the question than it
would have to have tried the function, let alone wait for answers to
propagate back. Had he tried BOTH functions and been unable to see any
difference then the question would have been justified, but there is no
substitute for learning something for yourself!

BTW. Obsolete (OED): Disused, discarded

His question would certainly have been discarded had he bothered to try
it! There are many ways of expressing a same meaning in English - feel
free to expand your vocabulary.
