Well, it is almost Christmas and like you, I have been terribly busy. However, I made the time to create a little Christmas present for you guys.One of my readers, Barbara, wrote me an email asking if I had ever seen of an action that would turn a color image B&W yet leave denim jeans blue. I haven't come across an action like that, so I decided to write one that night.
This action works in both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements and gives you 3 versions of denim to choose from: Classic Blue, Faded, or Bright and New. Just click on the eye icon by the layer you want to turn on. If there are parts of your image which still have color you want to remove, just click on the black layer mask in the "Remove Color" layer, then paint over the color part in the image with a white brush to "erase" it. Don't forget to flatten your image when done!
This action does not only work on blue jeans, use it in any image where you want to selectively color blue; like clothing, eyes, or landscapes. Galveston Island, TX (this summer before hurricane Ike devastated it during the fall) in this case.
If you want to use an action that will work with any color, please check out my Selective Color Action. I have plenty of things headed your way on this blog, including more actions (Pretty Portrait, White Chocolate Latte, more color pops, and B&W) plus more tutorials and custom papers/card templates. So please come and visit the CoffeeShop when you get a chance! I really appreciate all of your wonderful comments here. Have a Merry Christmas!!!
