Need Help to make color pic black/white background w/ color

Recommended Posts

I am new to this program and I am trying to take photos of my son and make them black and white photos while keeping his eyes blue. I have found a tutorial on here that I have tried 7 times and all I get at when I merge layers is a black and white pic. Please help me. I am good at following directions but for some reason this is not working for me!! Thanks!

open you image, press control+shift+D, then control+shift+G. Make sure the top (black and white) layer is selected. Then select the eraser tool, and erase the eyes. Does that help?

(control+shift+D duplicates the layer you are on, and selects the top layer, while control+shift+G changes the selected layer to black and white. What you are doing with the eraser tool is erasing the black and white layer, but the layer below that has color, and where you erase, the colored layer shows through.)
