B&W Color Mix

Have you ever went to a Kodak store and saw a picture of a baby and the only thing that was color was her dress? I'm going to teach you this.
Note: I will have examples soon.
001: Open up a fully color photo.
002: Go to Image >> Image Size - resolution, 300.
003: Duplicate the layer; turn off eyeball of original background.
004: Open a NEW photoshop document; (File >> New) color mode should be grayscale (not RGB).
005: Edit >> Paste (your photo should show up in a new window).
006: Click on the move tool (the black arrow) and drag the new grayscale photo back into the original color document window.
007: You should see your grayscale photo on it's own, new layer.
008: Line up the two images directly on top of each other.
009: On the grayscale layer, magnetic lasso around the rose
010: Then hit the delete key
011: You should now see the color within the grayscale layer
012: Got to Layer >> Flatten Image (hit "ok" for discarding any hidden layers)
I hope this helped a lot. Have any questions? Ask me and I will help you.
