Up for Discussion: Getting a Touch of Colour for Christmas
Since Monochrome Madness 43 is going to be Christmas images with a touch of colour, and quite a few people said they wanted a tutorial on it, I’ve tried to do that. I mentioned on Wednesday that I had written a tutorial a while back on how to do it, Colour Coming Through, My Way. It is one way of doing this, but I am sure there are other ways.
I have done two tutorials showing you how to do this, one in Photoshop 2014 and on in Photoshop Elements 12. I am sure the one for Elements would be the same with GIMP, and both require you to work with layers. I don’t know how to do it without layers, though I am sure there are ways.
I decided that since I did it a couple of weeks ago, perhaps we can open this conversation up. So if you have a tutorial that you can send a link to, then please add to the comments and I will add it to the post.
If you know a different way to do this, then please leave an explanation that I can cut and paste into the post. All suggestions will be considered. It would be great to get some ideas from you.
Rainbow Junkie has sent a link to a tutorial she has done, Monochrome with a touch of colour and she used Coral Photo Paint.
theinbetweendream has sent a link for how to do this in Lightroom, Use this selective color Lightroom trick to make your photos pop.
I have done a few images for you to give you some ideas and inspiration for some things you could do. Of course what you can do is endless.
