Photoshop B+W + color editing

first off,I'm sorry its so long and thats very unappealing but please read

and also sorry if its in the wrong place


Okay, so I've seen pictures people have edited where they turn a picture black and white except for a focal point. for example turn a picture of a player black and white then keep the flex frame what ever color it was.

Ive been learning photoshop as well as other adobe programs over the last 2 yrs at my school but its nothing really good,just the basic stuff.

Ive tried to do a couple of these but i wasn't sure how to approach it. One method i tired was direct selecting the part i wanted to keep color. then i would turn the mode to Grey scale then turn it back to RGB and paste the selection from the color photo.

I wasn't sure if this was the correct way of doing it,i didn't really think so b/c it didn't come out as clean as the other ones....

any info or tips would be great

sorry for the noobish-ness and the novel story.

its called selective color, you just desaturate every color except the color you want to keep

Search google for "selective color tutorial". I would also recommend not doing selective color. It is a stupid gimmick that just screams "I suck at photography and can only get people to look at what I want them to by getting rid of the color in everything else"

Having an opinion that approaches fact doesn't make you a dildo...

using selective color does, however.

I think it ruins what might have been decent pictures otherwise. Your eyes are instantly drawn to the subject and you're done, there's no reading the picture at all.

its really easy actually.

1 way to do it, is to take the photo like that. some cameras have an option called "COLOR ACCENT" and u can select the color u want to be shown.

this is how i do it on photoshop:

1. open up your image

2. create a new layer on top of your image

3. select the paint bucket tool and fill the new layer u created.

4. your image should now look all black, as in not even being able to see your original photo.

5. with your new layer selected, set the mode to COLOR

6. your photo should now be black and white.

7. then you can either grab the eraser and erase the parts of the layer that u want colored, or you can use a selection tool of ur choice, and push delete.

and there u go haha

pm me if u have any trouble

just me thinking here but couldn't you use the lasso tool and then select whatever you want to keep colored and then go to file or whatever and choose the "inverse" option and then desaturate that?

sorry for the vague approximation of the tools' name's. my computer is w/o CS2 for now..

^^^ yeah u can, and that can actually be faster. but i like to do it the way i said just because if theres more than one thing i want colored, i use the pen tool to make selections on everything i want colored and just push delete.

its all preference tho

If I was going to do it, I would do it the way I do a lot of other things. Make an adjustment layer(hue/sat), and use a layer mask. Use the quick select to get a good approximation, and hand paint the rest of the mask.
