In this Photoshop tutorial, we learn how to add a selective colour (or “splash of colour”) to an image. We will be converting the overall photo to black and white while leaving our main subject with a dash of colour
Add An Adjustment Layer
Black And White
To get the pop of colour effect we need to add an adjustment layer, we are going to make the main image black and white so choose the Black & White option
adjust your black and white image to how you want it
Choose The Brush Tool
Now you need to choose the brush tool, and make sure you have the BLACK colour selected.
using the black start painting on your adjustment layer and this will be making a layer mask ….
once you have carefuly painted the area in your layer that you want to come through the adjustment layer you will end up with an image with “pop” or “splash”
