Thread: Black and White.....and Red all over

    Black and White.....and Red all over



    No, its not a joke about a newspaper or a sunburnt Zebra [], its about Photoshopping pictures so they are B&W and Colour.


    Love it or hate it? Well I love it, I think It can turn a average picture into a quirky or striking one, here's a few of mine, anyone else out there got any?

    I tried to do the same as you did with above pic's, but no success. The best I could do was this. [8-|]

    This is one of those shop tricks that always pleases people for whom you take photos. I like the film strip style with the baby, and you are brave to have taken that shot from the Bike. Denise, the squirrel shot is hilarious! Did you feed that little guy or did he rob the trash/trees.


    I haven't done a lot of this kind of editing, but one from a friends wedding is below, fun topic, you all!.

    This is one of the only ones like this I've ever done. Painstaking! There must be an easier way to do this, cause back when I edited this, it took forever!

    Dead easy, (in photoshop anyway), all I do is get the pic, make a copy of it in a new layer, make this new layer B&W by removing all the colour saturation, and then use the eraser tool to rub out the bits you want to be colour to reveal the colour layer below.


    There are loads of variations tips and techniques, such as using paintbrush tool and layer masks, different eraser pressures, etc.etc, but the basic principals are, well, basic!


    In fact,the best tip i can give for photoshopping things is You Tube - type in what youwant to do and someone will have posted a tutorial, this was the first one that came up when i just did exactly that;

    explained how to do it with a layermask! Millions of times easier than Help Files IMO. I always use you tube now, haven
