Guys, I would appreciate it if anyone could help me. I want to isolate a flower in someones hand, leaving it in color, and having the rest of the photo in black and white. Thanks

Jim,

There are several ways to do this. One of the easiest would be to:
(a) Create a new layer (Control-J)
(b) SELECT the flower using the pen tool. Normally, that would mean that whatever you're going to do, you'd do to the portion of the image that you just selected, but you're going to
(c) SELECT > INVERSE to swap to the areas that you did not select, and then
(d) use your favorite method of removing the color from an image...

It's been awile since I've used 5.5. But I think all these tools are there. Select brush tool,select quick mask, then select area you want left in color. after area is selected select edit standard mode(next to quick mask) then select desaturate. When your doing the flowers keep the hardness low on the outside edges, easier transition to the b&w. I do this as a standard in at least two bride shots on every wedding I do. Takes some practice to get there.



Good luck, Bill

Generally its easier to do this without a selection. Just create a duplicate layer and convert it to black and white. Then use the history brush to paint back in the color in the flowers using a soft brush. Time to do this, about 30 seconds.
Cheers,
rfs

Hey RFS. Tried your method, and I got to admit, its faster. To think I got my method from one of the guru's of PS, I won't mention names. It's one of the wonderous thing about photoshop, there are many ways to do the samething. Gotta love it.

Best Regards.

Bill

Glad it worked for you! Here is a photo that I made using NIK Color Efex to create the "Old photo B/W" and then I used the history brush to paint back in the modern y2K red tie:



or version two where the history brush is used along with stroke to do the red border (so the border doesn't cross the legs at the bottom):
