Photo Trick from Something Awful

with one comment

Something Awful had a cool tutorial on how to color only certain parts of a photo in Photoshop.

To selectively colorize a photo, you have to do the following:

1. Open up the image of your choice
2. Select Layer->New Adjustment Layer->Hue/Saturation
3. Set the saturation to -100 to make the picture black and white. Or, select the colorize check box, and mess around with the hue/saturation levels to skew the colors a bit (like I did with the strawberries picture below.)
4. Making sure the hue/saturation layer is selected, choose black as the foreground color and use a paintbrush to "paint" the areas you want to colorize.
5. Select Layer->Flatten Image

Here is one I did myself.
