Tutorial - Selective Colour on a photo

1. Choose photo. Duplicate it.(Ctrl-J in photoshop).
2. Make original layer invisible (this is your security layer).
Work on the copy.
3. Use selection tool (running ants) to select the part you wish to keep in colour.
4. Copy this selected part to new layer. (Ctrl-J)
5. On original copy, desaturate to black and white. If wanted, apply a blur filter to make background less distinct.
6. When satisfied, merge coloured selection and b&w layer together (Ctrl_E)

I love these beautiful layouts!

I love selective colouring, I think it makes aspects or little details of photos stand out. :) Thankyou so much for this awesome challenge Sandie! :)
