I need help with all of it (I don't even know what some of those things are) but cutting and layering pics is something I need to work on. Thanks Lola!

Hmmm I see that paths are clearly the more unknown part of Ps here,for the kind of work we use to do aren't such important,but we can achieve some interesting things...I'll work on a tut about them in the next days,kinda continuation of the spiral text one...(Next would be cutting and blending,specially for the very beginners )
Here some samples...



*Btw,those white flowers are "San Francisco roses",from my garden...I took the pic yesterday...*

that´s so great Lola! I do not know how to use the paths on PS, I am always lazy to learn how to do them so end up making that kind of effects but with the vectors program so I can´t wait for that tuto.

I feel a bit stupid for asking this but can some one please explain a poor blonde how to transform a pic into black&white with keeping one area in it's original color or change it.

For example:
Making a pic b/w with keeping his brown eyes.
(Making a pic b/w and) coloring his shirt into orange.

I think after we have a b&w/monochromatic (sp?) GC it would be helpful for others, too.

Ach, I know how to do that but don't have PS (I have a different program) so I can't quite explain it. I'm sure Lola can be of great help. And yes, you spelled monochromatic right.

And Lola, the samples you've posted are just amazing. I especially love the roses!

I´ll try to explain it in my own way, hope I can be clear :

I open the same picture twice in PS. I leave one in color, and the other one I turn the mode into grayscale. Then , the same B&W picture, I turn it back to RGB mode, but you will still see it in grayscale.

Drag and drop that pic on top of the colored one, and you will get now a .psd file with two layers. You can work with the layer mask, erasing the areas of the B&W picture you want in color.

As Orlando says... "know what I mean??"

Thanks, Nel!
That was one way I was thinking about in a way. But I also thought of marking the area I want to keep or transform somehow...

Hey, Nel, that's the same as with my program! Cool!

Can't wait to see what you have in mind, Choco. I've been working with a black and white Robert Pattinson pic and trying to just work with eye color. I'm having a bit of trouble but I hope it works out soon.

Something evil, Fairy! As always!
To be honest I have not the faintest idea to where this will lead me.

another way could be , using just one pic, (the color one), selecting the area you want to keep colored, then invert the selection, and go to Image==> Adjustments ===> Black and White ^^

btw Fairy, when I use PS, I am totally "intuitive", lol... is a program I never studied when I was at the uni of design (because the computers were pentium1 with windows 95 in that time ), so I learnt to use it while working all these years . You can give it a try, because is the best program and you will have FUN, I sure you that ^^

You can also can also create a layer mask using the "hue and saturation" choice when you click on the round circle at the bottom of the layer pallet. Use the saturation slider to remove the color. The mask looks like a white layer in your pallet. Paint on that layer with black to remove the mask from the parts you want to remain colored. *you can also go back and do another mask with the brightness and contrast selection. Moving the contrast up with make the back and white pop.

Thank you so much. Nel & Kat!
I've just understood the half and never worked with this "hue and saturation" thing but I'll try it out after a few hours of sleep. And when I have a good idea for the GC...

Choco,are you looking for something like this?


If so, that is the way to do it:
Step 1.
If you start from a coloured pic,go to Image/Adjustements/Desaturate.
Step 2.
Open a new transparent layer,in the color pallete choose the colour that you want for the eyes.
Step3.
Now choose a soft circular brush in the apropriate size and paint the eyes,like this

Step 4.
With the erase tool clean and polish the edges if necesary,then go to Layer/Blend options/Colour...flat the image...and that's it!

Hope it helps you.
