Colored Focus on Black and White Photo with Paintshop Pro




We have often seen those fun ways to focus on a specific part of a photo by having a black-and-white photo while only one detail shows in color, whether it is a person, a single flower, or another. There are various ways to achieve this look and this tutorial will illustrate the one I think is the easiest and the fastest in most situations. Have fun.


If you have a great photo that you edited to show a colored focus, why don't you send it to us, and we might want to add it to this page!


Here is a photo that Wendy sent us. This is her granddaughter, Maisy.


Send us your photos too!

Here is a layout i made for a challenge a couple of years ago, with a photo where i specifically used that technique.

Here is another interesting use of the colored focus technique. This is Emmy, daughter of Josh and Cari Engelking.
