Make everything black and white except for one or two object

Recommended Posts

I want to be able to make everything in the picture black and white except for a couple of objects.

I tried the Conditional Hue/Saturation but I cant pick which objects, therefore it doesnt keep the colored objects I want to keep.

what if I need to select three items? I select the first item but cant select a second, it just selects the whole picture. and when i do the black and white it doesnt work

This is where you improvise. Note that image editing programs require that every now and then, and there's not an automatic filter for everything.

Try this (exactly as I say):

Add a new layer,

with the line tool, on the new layer, outline (with no gaps) each object you want to stay colored.

Once done outlining, ctrl+left click the insides of each of the three outlines.

Click the first layer.

Hit ctrl+I

hit ctrl+shift+G.

Delete the outline layer.

You're done.

Good job Tendercrisp... that's how to help someone. I learned something too :)

Agreed. Tendercrisp, that was an EXCELLENT reply. On par with Myrddin's replies, or even CMD's (when he's around).
