Step 1 - Select You Subject First, open the image you want to edit. With the image open, make a selection around the part you want to stay in color once we convert to photo to black and white. This tutorial was user requested, so I will use the image he provided as the example. As you can see, I selected the sky to remain colored. My selection is quite choppy, however if you are carefull when doing it your image will look much more crisp and realistic.
