Lesson 10. Creating Special Effects > Hand-coloring selections on a layer

Hand-coloring selections on a layer

First you'll remove the color from the selection so that you can color it by hand. Then you'll add a layer above the pears and apply any new color on the layer. This way, if you don't like the results, you can simply erase the layer and start over.

Desaturating a selection

You'll use the Desaturate command to desaturate, or remove the color, from the pear selection. Saturation is the presence or absence of color in a selection. When you desaturate a selection within an image, you create a grayscale-like effect without affecting the colors in other parts of the image. ImageReady has many of the same color correction tools available in Photoshop, including Desaturation.
