Hello All,

I want to take a picture of my wife in B&W, but I want her necklace to remain gold in color. I have searched the site, but have been unable to find anything that tells me how to do it. So I figure its time to turn to the experts! Thank You in advance for your help.

Retusnavy - You are asking about selective desaturation. The tutorial that BAMartin recommends is a great starting point.

Or another way is to do all you editing, b&w conversion etc, and before rotating or cropping, zoom in and use the history brush carefully to bring the necklace back to base image.

Thank You very much! Guess I did not look hard enough.

History Brush...Hmmm could not find that. I'm using Photoshope elements 5.0.

can you mask in photoshop 5? If so, just do a new adj layer, hue/sat. Sat -100 mask then paint in black what you want back in color. Just my thought

Yeah, that would be my best bet. Convert to B&W (hue/sat, channel mixer, etc) then paint over the necklace so it stands out. If you can do that in Elements, that is...

Thanks Philup! I figured out how to use the mask command in 5.0 and it did just what I wanted! Thanks All! And sorry to be a pain, still new at this.
