Isolating and Colorizing A Black and White Photo


Woman With Sweetheart Candy

Being that Valentine’s Day is around the corner, this is the most recent of my Photoshop CS5 tutorials.  In this video, I cover how to remove the color from an image and isolate a specific object on the photo.  I also cover the steps on how to then change the object selected and transform either for more dramatic impact.  I also added a blur technique to the background in order to emphasize the red heart in the foreground.  The transformation of the heart to look like a Necco sweetheart candy as in the photo above was not covered in the video.
