Selective Coloring with photoshop

Post by Holly on Fri Oct 10, 2008 6:08 pm

Selective Color-Photoshop


I have had several requests to do a tutorial on this so I did and now you gals will have it too!
BEFORE
After

this photo isfine as is, but as you can see, it can become even more visually interesting by highlighting just the crown. Luckily, Photoshop Elements makes this trick super easy to perform. NOTE: The steps are identical in Photoshop CS2. I used photoshop Pro

Zap the color

Step 1: Pop open an image in Elements and proceed immediately to the Layers Palette. Click the half black/half white circle and choose Hue/Saturation.



Step 2: Grab the Saturation slider and drag it all the way to the left and press OK. This should make all the color drain from the photo, as shown below.



Paint the mask

Because we want to hide the effect of the adjustment layer (since that's what zapped the color), we want to paint with black. Black conceals, remember?

Step 3: First, we must select the layer mask. Click on the layer mask thumbnail in the Layers palette, as shown below.



Step 4: Press B to select the Brush tool, and take a peek at the color chips at the bottom of the Toolbar. Press X until the black color chip is perched on top.



Step 5: Begin to paint the areas where you want color to show through.

Step 6: If you mess up and paint in too much color, just press X to swap color chips so that white is on top, then paint that area back out.

As you paint, notice what's happening on the layer mask thumbnail; the mask has taken the shape of the crown (example is different), more clearly illustrating how the mask works:


And again, here's our before and after:

I love this technique. I did this on my first BOM layout titled Me from A to Z. It's hard to tell, but my eyes are in color.

In the second photo, I blurred the siding in the background and removed the purse strap!

Will write up instruction if anyone needs them!
