[Gimp-user] from color range (blue to red) to greyscale range (white to black)


I hope you can help me with this issue since I could not find an apropriate
solution so far. For my report I am not allowed to use diagrams with colors
which are not recognisable after a black/white copy anymore, like the one
attached to this message.
Since a normal greyscale of the attached plot makes blue (lowest value) and red
(highes value) looking similar. This is not an option.
I am seeking for a quick way to, let's say translate from a color range (blue to
red) to a grey scale (white to black). Since I have to do this for several
images I would appreciate a quick way, if there is one...

I heard that there are more than one weighting algorithms like (R+G+B)/2 or
0,3*R+0,7*B+0,11*G and so on, but basically I would be interested in 0*Blue +
maybe 30*Green + 70*Red to achieve White as a minimum (which is now marked with
blue color) and black as a maximum (which is now marked with red).

Thank you in anticipation.

Best regards.
