I've been trying to do it in Photoshop but all I can do is turn an image grayscale.

How do I turn an image (any image) PURE black and white? (Like an Ink Blot)

2 steps
- step 1: color image --> image - mode - grayscale (as you have done already)
- step 2: grayscale image --> image - mode - bitmap

Experiment with the settings for resolution and dither method (50% threshold, pattern dither, diffusion, halftone screen)

Here's a 'tute' for you, it's easy when you get the hang of it!

Most probs like this a 'Google-able', so next time you have a image hassle try it.

Have Fun
