Colour splash

Post by danet » Fri Jul 08, 2011 1:43 pm

Well I have discovered this lately, makes a colour photo black and white, then you just 'restore the original colour' to parts of the photo you wish to highlight. For instance, black and white portrait, with only the red lips coloured, or a black and white portrait of a bride, with the flowers in colour only...so I started to experiment a bit....this photo I took recently, it's a bit odd, as I took it from inside, while the girls were outside, so it shows my reflection taking the pic, so I made the photo black and white, and coloured the girls only. I did this in photobucket....when you click on a photo after you have uploaded it, you then click on 'edit'....then you choose, 'effects'....and then choose "colour splash"....and have fun with it 8)

You're catching up danet, I was doing that sort of thing in Photoshop a few year back. :D

I like this effect. You can as Mr. Smith says do it in Photoshop and to great effect with the Tintii filter or stand alone software. But, this is so simple =D>
Like the girl in red on a black and white background in the opening sequence of the classic film Schindlers List, just brilliant.
