Fall 2014 – 12 – Black & White Bouquet


I can use clipping masks and adjustment layers to make a selected portion of a color image appear black-and-white.

Topics Discussed:

  • Magic Wand
  • Tolerance
  • Contiguous Selection
  • Black & White Adjustment Layer
  • Clipping Mask

Open the file called “bouquet.jpg” in Photoshop. Use the Magic Wand selection technique demonstrated in class to select the red elements in the photograph (the flowers and the berries). Inverse the selection and apply a Black & White Adjustment Layer to turn everything except the flowers black and white. You may also apply a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer to change the color of the flowers, or a Brightness/Contrast Adjustment Layer to lighten the flowers. Save the file as “YOURNAME bouquet.jpg” and place a copy in the “12 – Black & White Bouquet” folder in the Student Drop Folder.
