I use the history palette in photoshop to do it. I think most people do it using layers though. Bottom layer is in color top layer is in BW and then you erase where you want the color to show through.

The history tool works kind the same way, but it uses shots from previous points in the process. If you want to know more let me know.

Ambesi - could you post your technique - maybe a "how to" in the tips & techniques section for some of us to reference?

I use the magic wand thingy to select what I want to be in color - make it a layer - then adjust the photo to B&W as another layer.

I dont know if that makes ANY sense at all lol. I usually have to soften some edges & do some other black magic to get it right lol.

i figured it out thanks a lot....i learned something already from you guys!
what i did was opened up the picture then i would click on layers and then go down to duplicate and then make the copy
b & w and just take the eraser and erase what i want in color.
