I want to do this technique with a red dress and the rest B&W.I have Jasq Paint Shop Pro 8. But if I change imaget o B&W I can't color it.. also is there an easy way to select the image you want to stay red or to change to B&W ??? Would love any advice.... #2027827

Thank you Tika.
The coloring is done with a layer mask. I'm not sure how the ps you have works, sorry I can't help more.
