    Default How to do this ??


    Anyone know how to do this effect like the photo shown??
    If possible pls guide me the tutorial through photoshop as i more familiar with it.
    Thanks.

    Edit: The "effect" that i mean is the background all is in greycolour.... Only the main object is in focus with colour.

    This is selective de-saturation.

    The simplest method I know of is to add a saturation mask (desaturate to 0) and paint on the area where you want to have the colour remaining. When you're done with the process, it will desaturate the whole picture except the area you have painted over.

    Try it and you will know what I'm talking about.

    Another way is by using photoshop and lasso out the girl.. and invert selection.. change the surrounding to black and white by tweaking with the saturation.. or black and white filter..

    try this method.

    1) Do all color tune you want.
    2) Go to channel mixer to change the photo into black and white
    3) After that use the history brush to get all the colors back.

    Your result can be like this.

    Any questions can PM me.

    You need lots of patience my friend..
    After creating a b/w layer, add a layer mask
    Using the paint brush, zoom in to 100% or more view and slowly paint out the area you want the colors to shown thru using black.
    change to white to correct any mistake you made.
    Change the brush size for fit the areas you are painting.
