Fading Out Color

You ll often see this effect used in advertising—it's a neat way to convey the idea of an object moving from the past to the present, or from a humdrum world into an exciting one. One side of the image is black and white, and the other side is full color, with a smooth transition between the two modes in the middle.

Click to choose the Gradient tool, or press G.

Making sure that the foreground color is black, choose the Foreground to Transparent gradient in the Options bar.

Choose Saturation from the Mode pop-up menu on the Options bar.

Click and drag horizontally across the middle of the photo.
