Lesson 12. Advanced Compositing > Hand-coloring selections on a layer

Hand-coloring selections on a layer

You’ll start to add special effects to your montage by hand-coloring the pears, beginning with the pear on the right. To select it, you’ll simply load the first selection you created in the previous procedure. Then, you’ll remove the color from the selection so that you can color it by hand. Finally, after adding a layer above the pears, you’ll be ready to apply new color by adding it to the new layer. In this way, you can simply erase the layer and start over if you don’t like the results.

Desaturating a selection

You’ll use the Desaturate command to remove the color from the selected pear area. 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.
