Been having a play with a few photos and
Cool, is it difficult to do? what do you use?
Not that hard to do.
I use photoshop elements 10.
Will have another go later if I get time and jot down what I do. I can't think off the name off the tools I used.
You start with your colour photo, convert to black and white using a new layer, then use a tool to go over the bits you want the back into.
I've never used photoshop, but with results like that, I will have to sit down and have play
Right had a quick play and
Open a your image in photoshop.
In Layers Menu at the top Select New Adjustment Layer >Gradient Map
Then press ok.
In the adjustment box bottom rhs select B&W.
Use the smart brush tool Green + selects the area to add colour.
Red - Fines tunes i, takes the green selection away.
This took 5 Mins.
Mmm...handy to know, I only have Photoshop Elements because its bundled with Premier Elements, I think I started with 9, then 10, and have had to upgrade to 12 on OSX.
I can see how I could try different colours on a picture of my T3, to see whether I wanted another Swan White, or something different altogether, since I can basically paint it any colour I fancy and it will still be original undefined colour according to VW.
There's a nice little app called Colorsplash which allows you to do the same thing on your iPhone or iPad.
Here you go. Just done this while sprawled on the sofa.
Thanks for the info on how to do this. I'm pants with PhotoShop and been wanting to have a go.
Got to admit so am I pants at it too.
But over the last few weeks I've being playing and surprised with what I have found out.
The spot removal tool is great for getting rid off things like people in a photo.
Here we go a quick play around
