Adding Drama with Selective Color

Selective Color is a popular post-processing technique where the background is converted to greyscale, while key parts of the image are left in color. This is a great way to add some drama to your photos, and in this tutorial we’ll show you two techniques for selecting, or masking, the parts of the photo you want to highlight, and reducing the focus on the background. PaintShop Pro has several selection tools that make it easy to highlight just what you want. And there are many types of effects you can apply to the background, for varying degrees of muting or color.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to:

• Set up different backgrounds and apply muting effects
• Use selection tools such as Smart Selection Brush, Magic Wand, and Freehand Selection, to mask specific areas
• Adjust the background for various levels of saturation and color.
