Color and Black and White - The Pleasantville Effect


Recommended Posts

O.k. You have an active selection from the last step, copy that (Edit>Copy or Ctrl-c).

Then, add a new layer ( :AddNewLayer: , Layers>New Layer or Ctrl-Shift-n).

Rename the layer 'colors' (double click on the layer in the layers dialog, :Properties: or f4. Then rename in the text field.)

Paste. (Edit>Paste or Ctrl-v)

Step five is done.

Now that your question is answered, will you kindly remove the text in your profile?

Very nice! :D Something we newbies can easily follow.

Add a semitransparent colored layer in between before you flatten for a solid colored background. I think this picture was actually turned sepia instead of B&W and then had a green layer put in between. But then again I was never skilled in following instructions. :wink:
