In this video tutorial I show you how to acheive the color splash effect.
A color splash effect is one in which the majority of the image is Black and White BUT there is a specific part of the image that remains in color!
In order to apply this effect you need to do the following:
1.) First you must make your image the background layer and then duplicate it.
2.) Once duplicated you need to go to image < adjustments < black and white.
3.) After the image is changed over to black and white you then need to select the eraser tool and start erasing over the part of the image that you want to be in color.
4.) Because you have duplicated the layer once you erase the original layer which is still in full color will come through.
Thank you so much! That was the simplest video to follow and now I can have immediate results! Most photoshop tutorials are still over my head (beginner that I am!). Thank you for making it easy (except you say you can make your eraser bigger or smaller but not HOW! Beginner, remember!?)
