JustinThank you for that I'll have a look at you tutorial...
Or... you can just select the outline of the item you want to leave coloured, using the magnetic lassoo tool; then invert the selection so that everything *except* the thing you want is selected; and reduce colour saturation to zero..
Basically you just select the outside of the item you want to preserve, select inverse, and change the selection to black and white. You'll probably want to use the magic wand or lasso tool and then the masking tool to refine. A light feather of the edges can often make it seem more natural. The larger you are going to print the picture, the cleaner your edge will need to be, so keep that in mind..
Edit: I guess I didn't see the last post, sorry for repeating what was already said...
Get Scott Kelby's book for your particular flavor of Photoshop. I have his 'The Photoshop Elements 3 Book for Digital Photographers' (I think they are all similarly named)..
What I like about these books is that instead of a traditional training manual, the book is divided up into specific tasks. For instance, in the book I have, specific instructions are found on page 273, under the heading, "Using Color for Emphaisis'. (I know, that's a lousy heading, Scott isn't perfect, but most titles are very descriptive.).
Even though I am now using PSE5, I find the version 3 book to remain very useful. so I think it is a good long term investment.STOP Global Stasis! Change is good!.
Now that you've judged the quality of my typing, take a look at my photos..http://www.photo.net/photos/GlenBarrington..
