In the image you see below, I would like to take everything to B&W but the handprints. Does anyone have a PS workflow they can suggest that would allow me to do that?

regards

p.s. They are her handprints not mine.

There are many ways to do it. Here is one:



This was just to see how fast one could do a passable job (took 10 seconds).

The method was to use the magic wand with tolerance of 75 (select hands). Then choose feather of 1. Then Invert the selection. Then Desaturate.

If I wanted to do more, I'd use the history brush to lightly touch up the hand that was sort of indistinct on the leg. I'd also use a better method for converting to b/w than desaturate.

Bascially though, many methods will use the history brush. With a tricky area to select to leave red, I would first change everything to b/w then choose the original image as the source of the history brush and then paint the item that is to be red. This works best with the image enlarged.

Cheers,
rfs

Another approach would be 'Color Range' found in the 'Select' menu. I had the tolerance set to 40, sampled a color from the image itself then clicked the +eyedropper tool and kept selecting. The preview shows you what you have selected, as you keep selecting shades of the red with the +eyedropper tool you see more of the preview turning white and shades of gray. If by mistake you select too much use Ctrl + Z to revert to the previous selection. Once happy click OK. I did use the polygon selection tool to get rid of the selection around her lips. I then inverted the selection and converted to B&W.

Hope this helps.
