My top photos
Richard Waldron 30/11/2005 13:42I picked up on your message while browsing. The answer to yourquery is to convert to black and white via the channel mixer monochrome button, make sure the photo is RGB mode, Make a selection of the area you wish to colour with the appropriate feathering, go to image adjustment>hue saturation, click the colourize button and use the slider to select a colour for that area. Repeat on different areas as you will. (Photoshop).
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your comments on "cut & Coloured".
How are you getting on with your photo editing?
I was unable to find that article i wrote to you about the other day, I think that it may have been longer then I thought since I read it.
However the image "no angel" was created using Layers in photoshop which is an extremely useful tool to get to know.

That’s exactly what I trying to say.
I born in Argentina and now I’m working in Chile.
Both are ‘the countries of wine…..!’,
but I was a lucky man and enjoyed your wonderful wine travelling in California!!!!

Dominic Falcone 07/08/2005 12:03Hi
transforming part of an image into B&W is a fairly straitforward matter, providing that is you have some photo editing software, photoshop is the best and you dont need the full version.
All you need do is to select the area of the picture you want to work on (in this case change from colour to B&W) and then select grayscale from the drop dowm menu, the selected area will then have lost all of its colour leaving the remaining part of the picture in full colour. Of course there are many variations on the theme. If you are interested in digital manipulation then there are several good software packages you can buy,
and your best bet is to start there.
Dominic Falcone 07/08/2005 1:04Hi Dianaq
The image "no angel" was created some years ago while I was experimenting with photoshop. From what I can remember I took the sky from a shot of a sunset I had taken, and then using layers in photoshop pasted the image of the face over the sky adjusting the opacity until I was satisfied with the result. I recall that I took the basic teqnique from a tutorial in a photo mag which I may still have somewhere, if I find it I can e-mail the article to you. I will let you know first if I do find it.
