Dithering full-colour images down to monochrome bitmaps?

By monochrome I mean either a black pixel or
a white pixel, not greyscale. Does anyone know of any software or a tool (preferably free) that will do this? Saving as a monochrome bitmap in, for instance, MS Paint will just save each colour as black or white depending on which it is closest to and will not attempt to blend them, resulting in an unrecognisable image. This page
, featuring the man with the rather extraordinary hairdo describes exactly what I am after but I’ve not had any luck in finding anything further besides technical descriptions of the mathematics behind it.
Do the predominant programs (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, etc.) have such a feature?
Thanks in advance!
