highlighting a color in a picture

Posted by

This tutorial will show you how to highlight the colors in a specific part of a picture, like in my pretty in pink assignment. For that assignment, I actually used Picnik, which was very simple but is no longer available. Therefore, this tutorial will show you how to do the same in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Step 1. Open the image you wish to edit in Photoshop and duplicate the layer.

Step 2. Make sure the Background copy is selected.

Step 3. Make the Background copy picture black and white.

Step 4. Select the Eraser Tool and adjust the size. The eraser tool will be used to erase the black and white photo in the duplicate layer to reveal the color from the photo layer underneath.

Step 5. Start erasing!

Step 6. Save the final result. I find the easiest way to save edited images from Photoshop is to printscreen it, paste it into Paint, then save it from there.
