Well, I use Photoshop to create the effect. There are two ways to create this effect.

First, I took the picture and import it into PS. I created two layers. The top layer being BW and the second layer is in color. Then, I used layer mask on the first layer and make the eyes show through from the second layer.
Or an easier way will be selecting the eyes by using lasso tool and then go to "Selection-Inverse", then, go to "image-adjustments-saturation". Lower the saturation to zero and everything else will be BW and the eyes will be the pretty colorful eyes of your kitty. If you have any questions, let me know.

I'm trying that out but I have a couple of questions. First: I can select one eye but I can't select the second eye (the lasso tool turns into that thing that moves the picture around when I click down). Actually, I think that's my only question, lol. I tried the layers idea but I've never been able to understand layers so I gave up pretty quick. The 2nd way is easier for me, except I can only colorize one eye, lol

Same problem here. love the photos

I think I figured it out. I was right clicking (to show I was done selecting) but I instead had to go from the thing I was currently selecting (like, say, a paw) over to where I wanted to start on the next thing (the head or ear). Then I select that and then go to the next thing I want to select. As soon as I was done selecting, I'd left click and it'd stop allowing me to select. Then I'd switch everything to greyscale, only with one problem. When you switch from a paw to an ear, a long line (the selector) shows up between the two, probably because it doesn't quite know what it wants you to do. When that happens, you just select the patchy line of color (because the things you selected come out in color while everything else is grey, and that line is part of the selected color), and then turn that grey. Probably sounds confusing, so I'll let watchcaddy explain it (hehe, sucker). I haven't done it with the eyes, but I did it (sort of) with my 2nd picture (first one was an easy one of Molly), when I had to select both his body and then his paw, which was divided away from his body. The floor was light brown so the selected line was pretty obvious, but fortunately greying it out was easy.

watchcaddy, I thank you SO much! I've been dying to figure out how to do this exact thing (colorize one thing and have everything else in greyscale) for ages and now I finally know how to do it! Wh00t!




(hope this isn't stealing your thread but I'm just so PLEASED now, lol)


Oh, almost forgot: great pictures! I'll never get that kind of beauty, mostly because none of my guys have such beautiful eyes (sorry guys)

Haha, thank you. There is another easier way when it comes to selecting different objects in one picture using lasso tool. It is your SHIFT key. OK, after you have selected one eye. Move the lasso tool to the other eye. Now, press the SHIFT key and keep it pressed, then use the lasso tool to select the eye. You will see there is a PLUS sign on the lasso tool. This means you are adding to the previous selection. This will allow you to select different parts of the pictures without the long lines. When you made a mistake (the selection is too big), press your ALT key. This allows the user to SUBSTRACT from the selection. I hope this helps. Give it try and post your finished pretty pictures here! We will all share.

Oh, this applies to PCs only. I do not know the keys for MAC.

Feel free to let me know if you have any Qs. Thank you.
