Photography has become a popular hobby in recent years, and with the advancement of digital photography, there are now many different ways to edit your photos. One of the most popular effects is to make a photo grey except the eye color, which can add a dramatic and creative effect to a portrait. This tutorial will show you how to do this in Photoshop.
Step 1: Select the Photo
The first step is to select the photo you want to edit. You can do this by opening the photo in Photoshop and then selecting the “Image” menu and then selecting “Adjustments”. From here you can select the “Black & White” option.
Step 2: Make the Photo Grey
Once you have selected the photo you want to edit, you can then make the photo grey by selecting the “Image” menu again and then selecting the “Adjustments” option. From here you can select the “Hue/Saturation” option and then drag the Saturation slider to the left until the photo is grey.
Step 3: Select the Eyes
Now that the photo is grey, you can then select the eyes of the subject by using the “Lasso” tool. To do this, simply draw a selection around the eyes using the lasso tool and then press the “Ctrl” and “C” keys to copy the selection.
Step 4: Make the Eyes Colorful
Once you have copied the selection, you can then paste the selection back into the photo by pressing the “Ctrl” and “V” keys. This will create a new layer on top of the photo. Now, you can select the “Image” menu and then select the “Adjustments” option. From here you can select the “Hue/Saturation” option and then drag the Saturation slider to the right to make the eyes colorful.
Step 5: Merge the Layers
The last step is to merge the two layers together. To do this, simply select the “Layer” menu and then select the “Merge Layers” option. This will combine the two layers together and create a single layer that has the photo grey except the eyes which will be colorful.
