If you're interested in another way to bring out the color in parts of a b/w picture, try this:

Bring up your color picture

Create a new Hue/Saturation layer

Slide the Saturation slider all the way to the left which should then give you a b/w layer.

Make sure that layer is active and that you foreground color is white.

Then, just erase those parts of the picture that you want to be in color. If you go too far, switch your foreground to black and run the eraser back over the part that you want to remain b/w.

It's so easy it's scary.

EB,

Thanks for the hint! I'm going to give that a try this evening. Funny, as much as I've read about PS for the last couple of years, I haven't seen that .

Regards,
Tom

I use PS Elements and I'm still in the learning stage (I guess I always will be). I check the forums on www.dpreview.com and www.retouchpro.com and just read the regulars answers to various questions. Then I try it myself. As you can see by this one, I usually pick the easy ones.

On retouchpro, there are all kinds of actions and examples. Most are for the full Photoshop but almost all the tutorials can be adjusted for us Elements users.

Have fun. BTW, as far as your shot, she's a cute girl. I feel sorry for you when she turns 15.....or 12 now-a-days .

Tell me about it! However, by the time she is 16, I'll be 66, so I will probably be beyond the pains felt by younger dads, or at least I'll be able to tell her potential suitors that I can afford to hire someone to "take care of things" for me!
