Selective color is a popular post-processing technique where the majority of an image is converted to black and white, while some parts of the image are left in color. This is a great way to emphasize subject matter in your photos, or add a dramatic tone to them.

In this PaintShop Pro tutorial, you will learn how to:

  • Work with multiple layers.
  • Use selection tools.
  • Convert an image to black and white.
  • Isolate color on a black and white image.

Take a look at the before and after images below.
