Is there a right or wrong when it comes to which is proper between Grayscale or greyscale?  No cheating.

Depends on which side of the pond you are on. Gray for west side and grey for the east side.

Grayscale unless you live someplace that gray is spelled grey. I'm on the same side of the pond as Randy! (The only thing offhand I have with it spelled with an e is Earl Grey tea because that originated in England!)

G'day everyone

It's one of life's great issues ~ the American-ation of the English language following the Boston Tea Party

The vast majority of the planet that was affected in some way by the British Empire uses the words of the English and spells their words the same way. The land of the Boston Tea Party has created their own dictionary and spelling.

While we 'English-language' users read and see the American-ation via Hollywood and now the internet, we are often saddened to find English-language books created elsewhere but printed in the USA have had their text rewritten into American as seemingly, Americans are unable to understand that English language/s from other parts of the planet do not use American terms. For example - we in Australia use nappies for the baby, never diapers, and yet Aussie books have diapers [or any of 100 equivalents] inserted into the text simply for American readers. Overall it's rather sad, because otherwise you seem to be a highly intelligent mob :)

Honestly I wouldn't worry about it.  We all get what you are talking about.

I've used both.  Seems like many including myself didn't have firm understanding on which was which.  :rofl:

I though grey was the colour and Gray was a family name
but again, English is not my language… just trying to use it.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Grey, or gray, I think most would have figured out what you were talking about.
