My Color Project

I FINALLY figured out how to add color to a black and white photo. YIPPEE!!! I've been trying everything in PhotoShop to do this, even following their instructions. I finally figured out today that I can't change the photo to grayscale. I have to removed the color instead and work in layers.

I took this photo the other day at the arboretum because I thought these kids were too cute. I had no intention of posting this because I don't like to post photos of people without asking but this will be my exception because I thought this came out great. So... here are my first official color changing project!


The one below is my great niece.

Nice. Photobucket also has an edit program. You can paint on colors. I made a picture black and white and then painted the bananas yellow.

I like the subtle colors you added. Very good. Now I guess I'm going to have to do more experimentation.

I'm with everyone else - really cool. Such a sweet picture of these little ones. Painting only three pavers was just right.
Your great niece is a cutie!
