In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to create a selective coloring effect easily in just a few simple steps.
- Adobe Photoshop CS3+ (I used CS5)
Open the image you want to use. I will be using this stock photo.
Now, use a selection tool to select the main subject of your image. Here, I will use the Pen Tool to select the Easter eggs.
Now, we will invert the selection by going to Select > Inverse.
Finally, we will add a Black & White Adjustment Layer. Click on the New Adjustment Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers palette.
Select Black & White from the list.
If you wish, you can further customize the adjustment layer through the Adjustments panel.
And we’re done!
