Color and Black and White - The Pleasantville Effect


Recommended Posts

Hello - I am very new to this program. This is a great tutorial and I've almost got it down, but I am having one problem...

How do you get the magic wand to select more than one area or areas with different colors? I can only seem to select one area and only one color.

Thanks!

Hello badkitty1.

Now, we need a little more information on what you're confused about to help. With what you said, we have no idea what stage you're up to, what troubles you have encountered, in all giving us nothing to help you with.

We are not psychics, you know ;).

Hello,

I just today downloaded Paint.Net. In my old software I was able to do the pleasantville effect, but a totally different way. Layers are new to me. I am trying to do it the way I am used to, and can't figure out the layers.

1. I would take the image

2. I would copy the image.

3. I would open a new folder and then paste the image.

4. I would turn the pasted image into black and white.

5. I would then recopy the image.

6. I would close the new folder and paste the black and white image over the original.

7. I would then use the eraser to erase only the parts that I wanted to be color. (The black and white would be on top and erase to the color layer below.)

I have tried the tutorial way that paint.net has with the magic wand and it is not working for my picture, b/c a lot of my pic has the same colors in it and I just want parts of it b/w.

If I could get some help with the layers, I think that if I could somehow put a b/w image layered on top of the color image, I could then erase out what I don't want.

Thank You!
