Hybrow with selective color

Hybrow with selective color, photo by Mary Stebbins. I made this a BW by desaturating it and then used the history brush to return the eyes to the original color.

So the challenge for this week, should you choose to participate (ask me for an invitation) is selective color use. Posted by Picasa

What stumps me is how to remove red-eye with PS 7. The desaturate brush removes the red, but how to restore the blue/brown/green?

Use the eyedropper to select the color of the original eye (or paint palette if no original color is showing.) Then use the brush tool set to overlay to pain over the red if it is on the iris (otherwise color it black or white).

Mary the color on this one is better and more realistic in the eyes that the lighter b&w in the previous image. Looks good! I beleive it is a contrast deal.

Thanks, Sheesh!!!! :-)

I'm just learning myself how to do these things. I wanted to share the journey.
