You'll need photoshop or something similar, basically you'll need to first copy your original picture onto a new layer and desaturate it. Then you can delete the parts that you want to have colour for. I'm sure there is an easier way to do it but this is how I do it.

lasso the guitar, copy it into a new layer and convert the background layer to black and white

GIMP - the free alternative to photoshop

Draw around the guitar with the selection pen. Put your mouse sensitivity way down low. When you have selected it, right click the selection and click invert selection. Ctrl+C, new layer, Ctrl+V, Align it correctly, then desaturate the new layer. Ta Da!

cheers people, but all of these methods seem quite tricky or i have to download something... my computer is crap and slow so i'm not downloading =/ unless i have to.

On photoshop or some editing software, create another layer. Turn your picture black and white, then put a layermask onto that layer, and use your mouse to paint out the bits you want in colour, it will go back colourful as you wave the mouse over it.

no no no! duplicate the layer, make the bottom layer invisible, use the black and white adjustment layer to make the top layer black and white, right click layers palette - merge visible, then make the bottom layer visible again, apply a layer mask to the black and white layer on top, paint over the bits you want left in colour and then flatten and save.


bunch of photoshop n00bs.

this is the easy way to do it (especially if you dont really know photoshop). you could probably even use paint to do it. just might not turn out looking to professional

otherwise listen to the two above suggestions

as I ALREADY said, download GIMP!
photoshop is about £500, you won't find anything as good for free, so go with GIMP

Torrents. Or just download GIMP.

And the layer mask method is much better than the lassoo method. Just search Google for tutorials.
