    Hi all,

    I have taken some picture and wanted to do some special editing, and need a little assitance.

    The photos are all full colour, however I have turned some to B&W.

    What I want to do now is highlight and area and make that area in colour.

    For example, a bunch of flowers in color in a photo that is B&W...

    am I using the right software:?

    Any help would be great !

    Sorry I'm not sure if you are meant to post tutorial requests in this forum. I would post it in the "Graphics and Flash" forum.

    But I think what you are trying to do you need to go back to the original colour and start again.

    Then select the area you want to stay in colour and then inverse the select so that it selects all the area outside instead.

    Then go to Image>Adjustments> Hue/Stauration and then tick the box "colorize" and make the out side black and white.

    This SHOULD get what you are asking for. Let me know if it doesn't work or you have any problems.

    Thank you,

    Take your color photo and duplicate that layer in photoshop. Make the new layer black and white.

    Now you have a b&w version AND a color version each on it's own layer.

    Put the b&w version over top of the color version in the layer window.
    Select the b&w layer and click "Add layer mask" at the bottom of your layer window.

    Select the paintbrush and make sure you have black selected as your color.

    Now you can paint away the b&w and to reveal parts of your color version below.
