B/W with Color

STEP ONE:

Find a good picture of a flower, and drag it onto the Photoshop Elements icon located on the Doc.



STEP TWO:

You might want to make sure you are looking at the picture at 100% size. You may also want to open the Navigator palette so you can zoom in and out as needed. The path is "Window --> Navigator"

STEP THREE:

Select the Magnetic Lasso Tool.



STEP FOUR:

Outline the part of the image you want in color using the Magnetic Lasso Tool. When you have finished outlining it, it should look like this. Now, type "Apple-J" to place flower on it's own layer.





STEP FIVE:

Click the background and hold down until you reach the "New Layer" icon. After this process, your layers palette should look like this. Now, select the new background copy layer by clicking on it.

STEP SIX:

Go up to "enhance --> convert to black and white" and your final image should look like the example below.



STEP SEVEN:

If you want an added bonus you can go to "layer --> new adjustment layer --> hue/saturation". Once the dialog box comes, choose OK and then you can use the sliders to adjust the color of the flower that is on it's own layer. The sliders are highlighted in red.



STEP EIGHT:

Your final image could look like the picture below depending on what color you change the flower too.



STEP NINE:

Last step. Save your new B/W with Color onto your desktop. Make sure you click on your hour on the left, then your name and then click save. One thing you might want to do is create a new folder in your folder on your desktop named "Final Projects" if you do not already have one. This is the folder you will hand in to me at the end of the rotation.
