if you have PS 7.0 (i think the same method may work in Elements, i'm not sure...), here's the instructions:

1. Open your image in Photoshop.
2. In the Layer menu select: Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation
3. When the Hue/Saturation box opens, change the saturation to -100. You now have a new layer that is in black and white.
4. Click on the eraser tool. Now erase over those areas that you want color. If you make a mistake, use the regular brush tool to return that area to black and white.
5. Change the opacity as necessary when you near the edges. The opacity is located at the top of the screen.
6. When you're done select Layer > Flatten Image
7. Save

Nice attempt. Selective coloring doesn't always create a good picture, but this has come out very well.

Ah, Thanks Rocky. I followed your instructions and practiced on this one. Not quite as good as yours, but at least I got the gist of it.

looksl ike a pretty good first effort to me, Jerry! i'm not a big fan of selective coloring as a rule, but for some things, it does seem to produce a neat effect...
