I hope you gave the bride a nice print of this, because it will be a real keepsake!

I would also be interested in your border method. #99840

For the border:
A dear friend copied and old photo of hers that had been processed with filed edges. She then showed me how to attach it to my own pix with photoshop. #116435

Mary M. Means September 12, 2003

thanks! It's really quite easy in PS...
1)just lasso what you would like to keep in color
2)click inverse, so that now the rest of the photo is selected
3)desaturate, and then double click on the picture. or else click inverse again.
It should have desaturated everything EXCEPT the lassoed area.
Hope it helps and good-luck! #197422
