lasso those areas you want highlighted, copy,

do the black/wht conversion then paste. use the eraser to clean up the areas on the new layer


i think the filters will do the opposite then what you're asking

images->adjustments

make sure you have the right layer selected. After you copy what you want to stay 'non black/white' switch to the original/background layer.



and play with polarize... its my favorite

This is a great site to try out for tutorials. I generally use it for after effects and Cinema 4d, but there are a few on Photoshop.

http://library.creativecow.net/tutorials/adobephotoshop

Also, a WACOM tablet is a great tool to pick up if you are going to be playing in photoshop a lot. I do photo retouching and it works great!

beforeaftercopy

and 3D modeling and rendering.

Use the lasso or the magic wand tool and select the colored area you want to keep in color and make a new layer for that. then select the original layer and change it to black and white.

Geez .. that sounds all a little complicated

Copy the original layer, add a layer mask to the new layer. Convert the new layer to b/w (either channel mixer or use the b/w conversion tool in CS3/4).
Select the layer mask and use the brush with foreground color set to white
(press D to set to white foreground and black background) and paint over the areas that you want colored. Use a soft brush and adjust your brush size accordingly ( [ & ] ) ..

Wacom FTW!

Explain the magic pen thingy to me... I watched some of the tutorials on youtube but without explanation all I can do is follow it.

How would I change color to a specific color on say a bike(not just mess w hue and shade) and keep the reflections/shadows?

Thanks for the compliments. I have more pictures in my photobucket of things I made. Once you learn the programs, it is actually pretty easy to do.
