Thread: Photoshop Effects.

  1. #1

    Default Photoshop Effects.

    I understand that most photographers use photoshop to make their photographs look better or create a special effect.

    recently i came across a picture that is black and white. but the subject of the photo is in color. I wonder how the author did that. Anyone here knows?

    think the function is called de-saturate.

    actually this has been asked a lot of times here liaoz..

    but here is a brief outline, i try ar.. if cannot u go do a search

    duplicate ur base layer

    then u have layer 1 and 2

    desaturate the top layer

    then use the eraser tool and erase away the parts which are to be in colour

    thats my workflow lar..

    some pple's method i saw here involves the history brush, but i like this method more.

    imagine a kueh lapis...
    if the top layer is brown and you slice off a portion of it, you get to see the yellow layer!
    ...sorry... im just hungry


    anyways, its the same idea... "layers" is what we're talking about

    As you can see from the replies, there's more than one way of doing it.

    The sample you see is done with lasso, inverse then de-saturate.
    Try playing around, it's interesting.
