Would adjusting the Hue/Saturation to B&W be the same as removing just green, or blue and green? I'm gonna have to play some now....
Nah, CMOS or CCD doesn't really matter...except for the Foveon X3, they all apply Bayer interpolation to capture images.
Hue/Saturation is one way to do it...here's how to do it with live feedback:
1. Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer, type: Color.
2. Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer above it, type: Normal. Slide Saturation to -100
3. Go back to the first adjustment layer and move the Hue slider around.
A more flexible way to do it is to hit up the channel mixer, flick the monochrome box and mess with the RGB values.
