I’ve finally figured out how to keep part of a photo colour, with the rest black and white.
I experimented, quickly, on two photos. The first, a fuzzy photo of Tufty:
It’s a bit rough around the edges… I was only experimenting to see if I could do it. But, I would go and choose a black and white duck which probably didn’t help matters! However, in the image above Tufty now appears sepia compared to the rest. It does need fine tuning a little.
The second photo was actually a picture of King Rabletop III, from my ‘A Long Long Time Ago’ story series:
I suppose I need to work out how to tone down the colours (although the colours on these images are quite vibrant anyway) and make the black and white appear lighter, but I think I have the basics covered.
Now onto the technical stuff! Maybe…
