I made my first attempt at spot colorizing photographs.  I am not married yet but I am practicing for once I have wedding pics.  One is from our engagement session 3 weeks ago.

Awesome, I love pictures like this but have no idea how to do it. If I ask my photographer to do it can they?? OR better yet how did you do it?

It is really easy but I see why photograpghers charge a lot for the service. It is fairly time consuming.

I used Adobe Elements 3.0

Basicly you take your color photo and open it.
You can then make a duplicate layer of the same photograph.
Then change the duplicate layer to black and white.
The black and white layer is then on top of the color layer.
From there just use your erase tool and "erase" the parts that you want to show up in color and the color shows through.

I always love the photographs where the bride is in black and white and just her bouquet is color. I was determined to figure it out and got advice from girls on another site I use.

I love, love, love this look and yours look AWESOME!!  I can't wait for your wedding photos, they are gonna be awesome!  This is a particularly lovely technique to do with a closeup shot of your bouquet.  Smiley

I don't want to thread-nap...so here are some links to mine, rather than image inserts.  I did these as senior portraits for a lovely gal.  I'd offer to play with your pictures for fun, but geezie, I think you have it under control!!  One, Two, Three

I've gotten pretty good and darned fast at it.  I kind of cheat though.. I have a tablet with a pen, so I just trace around the image, just like I'm holding a real pen.  It's nifty!!

I tried some (is this becoming a spot-colorized-photos-along?)

http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=10822201&uid=5312863 

They're last four in the album. (I included the originals)

So much fun!

EDIT: Make that the last six...this is addicting!

SO funny that you edited in that the number of pix switched to 6!  They are AWESOME!  Is the last one a prom photo?  Geezie...gorgeous dress.
