Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge
Note: you will need ms. word in order to do this. If not, then you can still do this but you need someone or a program that can set a picture to grayscale.
IF YOU SAY THIS TUTORIAL WAS NOT HELPFUL, YOU STILL DON'T GET IT, WAS USELESS, WAS STUPID, ETC. I WILL USE THIS GUY'S HAMMER AND BANG YOU ON THE HEAD. :hammer: Because this took me a long time.
Open paint. If you are doing this for the first time, I'd like to suggest an image for you first. If not, then you can go ahead and find your own image. But I still suggest using this if you haven't before. ;D
Please keep in mind that these images should be small and simple, and easy to crop. Also make sure that they HAVE to be in color in order to work.
^ Copy and paste that into the opened paint window.
Open microsoft word please. =) Paste the image down in word. Click on it so that there is a box around it. There should be a toolbar, if not, then go to view>>toolbars>>picture.
*click the thumbed image for full preview*
Now then. On the toolbar, click the second icon and then click on 'grayscale.'
The image should've turned black and white.
Click outside of the box so that the image is NOT selected.
Now screenshot it.
Press 'Print screen' or 'prnt scrn' on the top left corner of your keyboard.
It should be next to F12.
Open up another window of paint and paste it down.
Ctrl + v
Crop it so that it is the image only. Please make sure that you have not resized it or left anything out.
Now copy the image.
Go back to the other paint window with the colored image and make the surface larger to paste the b&w image.
Paste the b&w image down. If it doesn't fit, make the surface bigger. The whole image has to fit.
Save it for now, just incase an error gets by. >_<
Zoom in at 6px by clicking the magnifying glass and then 6px underneath.
Okay, now you choose the star tool. It's the first one on the list. And then on the bottom, make it transparent.
Kay, so for now, we will be making her face & neck colored.
Scroll up or down until you see her whole face and neck. Yes, it is pixelly, don't mind that. Carefully trace around her face and neck. VERY CAREFULLY! AND DO NOT LET GO YET. :3
When you're done, it should have turned into a box. Right click over it, YES RIGHT CLICK, and click copy.
Zoom back out by pressing the magnifying glass and pressing the image.
Here is what I got:
Paste down your cropped face&neck down and drag it to the black and white image. Put that onto her face. Try to match it as evenly as possible.
When you're done that, press outside of the box.
Her face is now colored.
Kay, let's stop there. This tutorial is already long enough. :tongue:
You have just colorized your very own image on paint & word. This was mainly done on paint, though. :biggrin:
You can now do whatever you want - Colorize some more body parts, decorate it, or even use some other tutorials and make it look even pretty.
Here is my final product:

Shouldn't matter anyway, I give it to you step by step except some parts *which could be done if you play around a bit* so yeah. The screenshots are there to reassure you're doing everything right.

I didn't know Paint and Word work so good together. Haha. :D
