Here is a simple way to do selective colouring in photoshop. My version is photoshop 7. I would hope that other later editions will be similar to follow.
1. Open Photoshop…that’s easy huh! (giggle).
2. Open up an image that you want to use…that’s easy :)
3. Up the top of the page you will see Layer. Click on that.
4. Scroll down to Adjustment Layer and click on that.
5. Move across with your mouse and you will see in a list, Hue/saturation.
Click on that.
6. You will see a new small window come up saying New Layer…just click
OK, if you see hue/saturation there next to name.
7. Next a small window with Hue/Saturation will appear…grab the slider
on saturation and slide it all the way to the left till you see -100.
8. Click OK.
9. Now you are ready to paint in the colour that you want on the image.
At this stage your image will be black and white only.
10.Go over to the left and click on your paintbrush.
11.Up the top of the page you will see MODE. Click it and change to Normal
You can now adjust your paint brush size up the top of the page, and then start painting back the original colours onto the image very carefully. You may want to adjust the paint brush a couple of times with the size to get into the smaller tight spots on the picture. Once you are happy with the masterpiece finished with selective colour, just click the file at the top of the page and save it…You have just created selective colouring!!!! WooHoo.
