    What do you mean by "Red color words behind background, and the rest in black"? I think it is easier creating it than understanding what you are trying to tell us.

    type the words in red,
    create a new emtpy layer
    ctrl A to select all.
    fill it with black

    and now you will have red words behind with black background.

    hope this helps.

    How much do you charge for doing an effect like this?

    Can't really find a picture to show what i really meant. Actually it is like a photo with a special wording behind a person and i wanna highlight that particular wording and leave the rest of the picture black.

    I don't wanna type any extra wording.

    Saw it somewhere in the forums before. Bah, will find a example soon.

    Can't be. The words are in front of the background.

    In Photoshop, use the magic wand & select the wordings. Then increase brightness & contrast or saturation or whatever. Then inverse the selection minus the subject & paint the rest black. (Just one of the way to do it.)

    I'd really like to see what the word will look like behind the background. I still can't visualize.

    I think what he meant was the BG got some wording and a person in front. He wants everything in B&W except the wording. Easy mah, just copy the wording to another layer. desaturate the original to gives the B&W effect. the wording which is on the tyop layer will remains in colour. I'm a newbie in photoshop too

    you may flip the photo, or try see it from behind of the monitor.

    if you use the method I mention earlier, all you need to do is to click on and off the Layer Visibility Icon...

    now you see it..
    now you don't..
    now you see it..
