How do i make my photos black and white while choosin which parts i want to be in color?
Hi, i woul dlike to make my pictures black and white, but choosing only one or more objects to be in color. I currently have Picasa2 but that only allows me to do one circle spot and not every where i wanna do.
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: basicallly it depends on what software you are using. if you're using photoshop or gimp, make a duplicate layer of your picture, then make the top layer black and white, either by desaturating the picture or by using a b&w gradient map (which is my personal preference). next, take your eraser tool, and with the black and white layer selected, erase the section that you want to be in color. this removes part of the b&w layer, allowing the color layer to show through. while this is easier to do with photoshop, you can do it on the gimp (which is a free photoshop equivilent software that you can download from www.gimp.org) it's a really easy process once you get the hang of it-good luck! :]
