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:

had forgotten as step and needed it today. Yes, this tut is still here and works very well.  It was several years ago when the tut was published.

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)
