Back and white selective color question

Recommended Posts

My friend using Lightroom to edit this image to remove all the colors except for the yellow of the squirrel. I have been trying to duplicate in PDN but haven't succeed yet. I've used Conditional Hue/Saturation plugin to adjust the color but there are still some yellow on the ground I want to remove but it doesn't. Below is the edited photo from my friend and the original.

Using a transparent new layer above the background

draw an unbroken outline around the squirrel, magic wand inside

and copy and paste from the background into a new layer.

Then use Black and White in Adjustments on the background layer

and merge the color squirrel down onto it.

You'll need to draw the outline carefully only under the foot and tail,

everywhere else you can leave a margin outside the squirrel.

You're looking for a tutorial called "Color and Black and White: The Pleasantville Effect." You can find it using http://searchpaint.net.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Here are my simple steps after unsuccessfully follow the Pleasantville Effect tutorial. I could not get the magic wand to select everything on the image except the squirrel.

1. Use Lasso to draw a line around the squirrel then copy and paste to new layer

2. Adjust black and white on the background layer and merge the two layers together.
