Color and Black and White - The Pleasantville Effect

Recommended Posts

All the pics look amazing.....I have a slightly different way of doing the same effect...

Click title to view: >> "Blending colour into black & white Images"

-----------------------------------

Helpful Plug-in:

Colour To Alpha by Tanel

Tools:

Eraser Tool-Expose lower layer

Magic Wand-Control erasing edges (use with "ADD" and "Tolerance" adjustments)

1. Duplicate Image and convert the top layer to B/W using your favourite method (Or use colour tones).

2. Select the B/W layer and use the Eraser tool as a paintbrush to remove areas and expose the layer below. The intensity of the brush can be adjusted by lowering the "Transparency-Alpha" found on the “Colour Bar” when you click the "More>>" button. Erase a little or a lot. It’s up to you.

Well, unless you renamed it, it should be the layer at the very bottom of the Layers window. It should be called "Background".
