Is it possible to select jsut the black and white pixels?


Recommended Posts

I know I discovered a way to do it (transforming the saturation value into black/white), but I forgot.

I'm sure someone can come up with a codelab script that can make full saturation white and low saturation black (BB is online right now...).

Okay, nevermind my last post. Don't even look at it.

1. Ctrl+Shift+D

2. Ctrl+Shift+G

3. S (four times)

4. Click what you want

5. Ctrl+Shift+Delete

Translation: Duplicate the layer, make the top layer Black and White, select the magic wand, create your selection, and delete the black and white layer.

It's a lot easier than that.

1. Place one black dot (using Pencil) on the image, and one white dot next to it.

2. Magic Wand, tolerance to zero; hold shift, click the black pixel, and then hold shift and click the white one. This will select all the #FFFFFF and all the #000000 pixels on the image.

Does this work for you?

yeah...really nice method DA! Optionally u can play with the tolerance in case you want to select the not quite black/white pixels as well.

f.ex.: #020202 or #0A0A0A

Thanks!

If you want to preserve the image, just increase the canvas size by one on the side and put the additional pixels in the new spot. Then, once you've done everything you want to do with the selection, shrink the canvas back down again!
