What's up YouTube, its Creative Ice Media Group and I'm going to show you pretty cool effect that you can put in your images which is when you isolate part of the image, it could be a person, it can be my example of a car. From the background, I make the background black and white and the selected part of the image is in color. So to do this, all you want to do is open your image into Photoshop and then lock it by clicking this lock here. Double click in it, press OK. Now what you want to do is make a selection of the part of the picture you want isolated and stay in color. So for me, it’s going to be the taxi. So what I want to do is grab your pen tool, make sure that you're settings are like mine. And just start making your selection. Make sure that the opacity is on 0. So you can see what exactly you're selecting. Mine is going to be really rough. Selecting a car like this, unless you do selecting an item on a daily basis a lot, it should take you around up to 10 minutes to make it decent selection. Okay, I'm actually there. Keep making the selection. Okay. Once you joined the two points together, right click, mark selection. Feather radius, 3 pixels. That’s okay. Now once its selected, see the taxi has been selected you can delete the shape you just made and press control C, control V which copies and paste the selection. Okay, now go to layer 0, back to your original image and go control U or image, adjustments, saturation. Make saturation minus 100, press OK. That’s basically the general of how to do it. To make it look better you can duplicate the cut out taxi and drag it in here, render. Press that mode, soft light. And it just gives that color effect. And that pretty much it. It’s a cool effect, easy to do. Doesn’t get too long. And that’s it, please comment, rate, and subscribe.
