Color Sections to Black and White Photos

I love black and white photos where a section or item has been colorized. I've seen this done a lot. I wondered how they did it and but never tried. I think I'll give it a shot.  

How To Add Color To Black and White Photos in Photoshop

Photo from Adobe page ~

If anyone is successful with it or has done it before, please post a photo or link to your photos in the comments. Can you post photos in the comments? See, still more for me to learn.

Adobe also has a  Tumbler Page - Tumbler, another thing I'm just now discovering. Adobe's has links and tips.

I've still have so much to learn, especially with Photoshop. I've got version 3 but I think it's up to 5, amazing! And here I thought the 64 box of crayons was cool.

Happy coloring,

Blessing of the Fleet ReVisited ~ Mosaic Monday

With all that's going on in the gulf I've been thinking about the local shrimpers. Every year there is a Blessing of the Fleet in Bayou La Batre. These were snapped in 2007. The President mentioned the blessing tonight in his address so I thought I'd use them for a mosaic. Sorry that I'm a day late.  I know I said I'd do better with this blog but so far I haven't got a groove going.

Please click for a larger view. I still haven't gotten the blog width thing figured out here. So much to do, so much to learn.
Enjoy your week. :-)
