    something like this effect?



    I do it via adobe photoshop. basically take a colour image, desaturate it to black and white, and use the history brush to undo the changes to the parts u want to be coloured. Alternatively, create a separate layer on top of the coloured original, desaturate it and erase the parts you want to be coloured.

    Photoshop skills can be picked up by reading books from the library, and trial and error. With digital imaging, skills in photoshop are almost a must.

    Came across this forum that might help!

    But the way I see it, you can apply this technique in single colours only. Anyway, layers are the way to go!

    Cheers!

    Its actually quite simple. Use photoshop to desaturate the picture and then using the history brush tool, paint over the portion you want to be in colour....
