Adobe Photoshop Elements 9


Likes # 0

I have this programme on my computer and am learning how to use it. I also have a book showing various ways of enhancing images.

Trouble is that I want to change an image but don't know the best way to achieve the result I want.

The problem

I have an image taken at a wedding showing the bride and groom standing together. The bride has her bouquet and the groom, his buttonhole.

What I want to do is change the whole image to black and white (I can do that bit) and then "paint" the colours of the flowers back in.

There seem to be various ways to do this using layers etc (according to the book) but it's at this point I get lost!

So, any expert help will be gratefully received.

Going back to the original question ams4127 already has PS Elements 9 and its perfectly possible and easy to achieve what he wants to do using Layers/adjustment layers, and is the method given in the DP tutorials as recommended.

And PS Elements 9/ Paintshop Pro 10 are still cheaper than Lightroom, which is aimed at the more advanced user.

As for doing a job 'properly', there are many ways of achieving a result, none of which are more 'proper' than another as long as the desired result is achieved.
