Default How to Create A Black & White Photo with spots of color

This is my first tutorial! so bear with me and ask questions if you dont understand a certain step or whatever...

anyways, this is a simple trick to take a photo like This

and turn it into something like This

Ok so here we go:

1.Open your image of choice up in photoshop

2.Go to the bar at the top and select Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation

3.Click OK and you should see a screen like this:

4. Drag the saturation all the way to the left and click ok.

5. Make sure your color palette is set with black first and white second, like this:

6.Now use the paintbrush tool to paint over your black and white image. The segments of the picture you paint will return to color. Here's a halfway point of this picture:

and here's the final result again:

I used a size 17 brush for this pic but you can use whatever you want to get the right amount of detail

good luck and let me know what you think

Vance Joseph!

Cool. I saw Sin City the other night and that's how the movie was done. Mostly reds stood out in stark color against the black and white backdrop of the movie. A few yellows later on.
