Professional SELECTIVE COLORING Tip To All Rosity Photographers



Hello To All...

I did upload the same tutorial few days ago in the Photography forum.
So I thought to post it again here one more time for all my friends and all the photographers/Renderosity members who really need to know a big SELECTIVE Coloring TIP for Digital Photography.

Before i start, i want to say, there are many people/friends asked me how I do my SELECTIVE Coloring so fast and the results are so professional. And I was also totally surprised when I knew that many of my friends/members does the Selective Coloring by Duplicating the original COLOURED image, transforming the top layer into black and white and then they use the eraser to erase the un-wanted areas to leave the colour(s) they want!

OMG!! Noooooooooooooooooo... You don't have to go through all this again.. Here are some 5 easy steps, and by practice i bet you will be able to do it in less then a MINUTE!!!

So lets start and see here:

Step 1: Run your photoshop and open any image you want to work with.. I used this one here, and you can download it and start with it as a sample piece:

Awesome! Neat little trick for cool results that I've been trying to figure out, "how do they do that?" for a long time now. And the nice part is that it's not complicated or time consuming. Thanks for sharing. {:O)
