Hi eagle1337,

I think this question more properly belongs in the Imaging and Video Editing Software so I'll move it there. But I've left a "shadow" behind in the DSLR Tips section so members can find your question from there as well.

I guess it depends on the software you use. Here's one solution, courtesy of Photoshop CS4.

Bob.

First of all, why don't you tell us what software you have to do it with, they we may be able to assist you a little better!

Is it possible that Selective colour can be use in Lightroom or just jump to CS4 ? :?

Yep i do selective colour in LR all the time, just desaturate the colours which you don't want, and then use the adjusment brush, for any finer adjustments!

There are multiple ways of doing this even with the same software package. As detailed above, it will be more useful to tell us what package you're using so we can direct you with instructions on how to perform selective colouring.

One of many methods:

- Open the image, duplicate the layer.

- Create a new adjustment layer > Hue/Saturation

- Turn the saturation to -100.

- With a black paint brush and on the Hue/Saturation layer, paint in the parts you want in colour.

- Flatten image
