HELP with an effect!


Recommended Posts

This is actually quite easy.

First, open your full color image.

Second, select the parts of the image that you want to remain colored and press Ctrl-I to invert your selection. (Or, simply select the parts of the photo you want to make black and white.)

Finally, click the Adjustment menu and select Black and White (or press Ctrl-Shift-G)

That's it. :)

However, if you are trying to color a black and white image, that is a whole other story. ;)

Use the Magic Wand tool and adjust the tollerance for the desired effect.

This is not always as easy as it sounds. You will need to exparament with adding to a selection, various tollerence settings, and where to click, etc.

Keep at it.

Oh, and if all else fails, you can try one of these two things:

1) create a copy of the layer, increase the contrast and use that layer for selections only. Then, delete it when you are done.

2) create a new layer and draw in pure black (turn off anti-aliasing) in the shape you want to select. When finished, select, switch layers, run the effect, delete the new layer you had created.

Here's how i do it:

~Make a copy of the layer with the pic and hit "ctrl=shift=G"

~Move that layer behind the colored image

~Then start erasing everything on the colored layer that you want to be black and white.
