Color Leave In Photoshop


MAcSandNinEs

Recommended Posts

Let's say you have a picture of you and you want to make everything black and white except your gun/ass/car/girlfriend? You've come to the right tutorial. When I get my computer repaired, I will update with pictures.

 

Tools Needed:

 

Colorful picture

Photoshop (Elements works too)

 

Step One

 

Open your colorful picture in photoshop. Go up to the top right corner and pull the "layers" tab down so you don't have to click it every time you want to screw with the layers.

 

Step Two

 

Duplicate your layer by going to Layers-->Duplicate Layer

 

Step Three

 

Make the bottom layer black and white(grayscale) or make it a gradient map by going to layer-->Mode-->Gradient map, and make it grayscale.

 

Step Four

 

Select the top (color) layer and erase what you want Black and White .

 

Step Five

 

After roughly erasing the large parts to make them black and white, make the bottom layer invisible, so the part that's colored just shows up.

 

Step Six

 

Finish fine tuning and perfectly erasing everthing you want black and white.

 

Step Seven

 

Make the bottom layer visible again and Viola! You have successfully completed a color leave.

 

It's a short and sweet tutorial, but color leave is very handy in GFX. It adds a cool effect if you just want one thing to stand out.

Now, go teach all you friends how to make stuff colorful.-JD-

Because images are disabled, if you want to view the bigger version, click the "(IMG:" bit.

Rofl, it's thumbnails.

 

@Tut:

It'd be a whole lot better if you used pics. And there are much simpler ways to do this also confused.gif

~Mercie, where did you get the windows skin? It looks great!

Mercie just kinda owned the topic.

 

But quickmask mode is much easier/quicker if you're semi-decent in PS. ph34r.gif

Lmao, that's what I was thinking.

 

@Tut - As said above, images would help a lot. Even if you just made before and after images, it would still help people have a look to see if it's the way they want their photograph (or whatever source they use).
