Bring in the focus with a splash of color – colorize tutorial

Colorsplash_LIThis is a fun way to bring extra attention to a particular area of a busy or almost too colorful image.   It will definitely “draw” the viewer’s focus to exactly where you want it to be on the image. Colorizing in Photoshop can be accomplished in many different ways, this is just one way to colorize.  I think this is one of the easiest ways and should only take less than ten minutes.  We will change the image to black and white then using a mask and a paint brush, we will bring a splash of color back.  Enjoy!

The kitten photographed by Kelly Richardson in this image is a rescue kitten that has been in foster care since she was just 4 weeks old. She was adopted almost immediately within hours after her image was uploaded to the adoption website. She is extremely sweet and affectionate and it was not hard to fall in love with her while taking her photos. This image is also part of our LuvKelly Recycles Campaign for November, and is available for licensing on greeting cards and such, along with many others from the shoot. If interested in seeing more, please contact Kelly using this contact from.
