  1. This is my first ever edit. The magic wand is tricky. I tried glow but it made the color funky.

    well. how do I add the picture to the post? I tried the attach a file thing at the bottom and it just took forever. I feel like an idiot.

    If you have a photobucket account you can upload it to http://www.PhotoBucket.com

    You could also use http://www.tinypic.com or http://www.imageshack.us

    Then just use the embeed codes that they give you or to be more simple

    urltoimage just add the url of the image in between the tags.


  2. This is a very easy effect,

    I'm new this is my first post, I'm sorry if this is too simple of a tutorial. I'm sorry if this has already been posted

    1. Start By Choosing an image
    I did a Google search and found this flower and since i like flowers and they are easy to test on i choose it.
    Sorry of the large size.

    2. Choose the Magic wand tool :MagicWandTool:


    3. I usually turn the tolerance down a bit, 50% Will select too much on most images (I used 27% for the flower)


    4. Select all of the area of the image that you want to stay color


    5. Copy that area and paste it into a new layer called color layer :LayersAddNewLayer:


    6. Deselect the selection with Ctrl+D :EditDeselect:


    7. now choose the background layer :WindowLayers:


    8. Then Go to Adjustments and click black and white :BlackAndWhite:


    9. You will now notice only the color layer has color(obvious)


    10. Now merge the two layers. :LayersMergeLayerDown:


    11. I usually use the curves tool and edit the luminosity after merging the images to make the image seem more realistic. I usually also add glow to add vibrance to the image. :CurvesEffect:


    12. You should be done and should have a result like mine
