2. Duplicate your layer so that you have two photos – one on top of the other. (Layer>Duplicate Layer)
3. Desaturate the top photo (CTRL-SHFT-U) do any adjustment with brightness, contrast, curves, etc. that you want. Notice you can see the two layers on the tool bar, make sure you are on the balck and white layer for our next step4. Click on your eraser tool. I have mine set to 97 to do larger areas at one time, and if you hold your mouse button down, you can whip through this pretty quick... 5. Erase the area on the black and white layer that you want colored. Make sure to zoom in and user a smaller brush for the edges.
6. If you want to zoom in, to get really close to the edge, see the magnifying glass on the tool bar on the left click on it and you can zoom in, if you want to zoom out...right click on your image and scroll to zoom out ( thats what i do anyway) here is what a zoom in looks like.
yeah what a sap he can be, lol...see what the technique looks like, isnt it a great way to add a bit of colour to a black and white photo.
7. So once you are done, merge both layers, ( Layer>merge visible) and dont forget to save!!
Photo tinting can add such a wonderful accent to your pages, whether they are digital or paper. With tinting you can take your photo from a good photo to a piece of art!
