Combining color image on Black&White….or turning background to B&W makes dramatic images……
There is a photo of old Yellow cab…….well……such a dull & boring photo……so, I used the technic I explained last time.
Image – Mode – Grayscale then, after you withdraw the color, turn it back to RGB color again.
At this stage, you only have B&W image.
Pick History brush, then brush around the Yellow cab. It is better to use Large, Soft brush.
Well…..at least it looks a little bit better….
Let’s make it look even better!
“Ctrl+J” to Duplicate the layer, try the blending modes…..
It is really depends on the image, I liked Vivid Light on this image and adjust the Opacity to 90%.
How about this? The boring photo became such a dramatic image.
From my experience, lots of boring photos can be good material of photoshop. So, please be careful to delete photos.
