Help with a photo technique

Unread postby RareTA » Mon May 26, 2014 4:47 pm

Hi folks,

I was wondering if someone could tell me how to do a photo that's all B&W except one item. I've seen photos done this way with say a scene that is all B&W but the car, leaf or whatever is the main focus of the photo is in color. I would love to know how this in done.

Thanks in advance!

Hi RareTA

"Colour Popping" is fairly simple to do depending on what you are trying to achieve.

If you do a search on the internet for "Photoshop Colour Popping" you will find there are many videos showing how it is done. If you don't use Photoshop but your editing programme uses Layers it is likely that a similar method will work.

Generally if you want to know how something is done a search on the internet will usually provide an answer.
