ON1 not recognizing Gray colour profiles

I have a mid-2007 desktop with OS 10.11.6. I use the image browser/editor ON1. I have 20,000 images, some of which are black and white, but the software refuses to let me view any that have the color profile Gray. ON1 recognizes only sRGB or RGB. These images are viewable on other programs and in the Finder. (ON1 has a very valuable hierarchical folder view that I find essential.)

My question: How can I convert these Gray images to sRGB so that ON1 can see them? Or should I?

Done that!

All ON1 support says is that the program only supports RGB. Not very helpful. But thanks for replying.

Then it's time for a test.

Take one and save it as RGB to see if you like the result. Be aware I don't take this lightly. I like originals when dealing with my photos.

Yes it works

I had to open the files in Elements 10 (for the mac), and, under image, convert colour profile to Adobe RGB, then save. It worked for 90% of the files. Thanks.
