Chapter 10. Color Manipulation > Colorizing Grayscale Photos

Colorizing Grayscale Photos

If you enjoy the look of hand-tinted photographs but don't want to deal with the chemicals and mess that are usually involved, then you might get excited enough about some of Photoshop's features to make you want to drop your brush and start colorizing your images with a mouse.

You can use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to add color to a black and white image. All you have to do is choose Image > Mode > RGB, select one of the areas you'd like to add color to, and create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer. With this choice, you'll first need to turn on the Colorize check box, which should shift the selected area to a color similar to your foreground color (Figure 10.30).
