Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying selective effects, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
In this lesson we'll focus our attention on targeted effects. …We'll add a Targeted Adjustment as well as a Targeted Filter, utilizing layer …masks in both cases to apply the effects only where we want them. …I'd like to start off by converting the church in the foreground here to a black …and white version. Of course, part of what I like about the …image is, the complementary colors of blue and yellow. …But I think it might be more interesting, and the sky might have more impact, if we …reduce the color in the church. So, I'm going to create a selection of …the church, but actually it's much easier in this case, to first create a selection …of the sky and then invert it. So, I'll choose my Magic Wand tool from …the toolbox, and then I'll click within the sky and Shift-click in a few areas in …order to add to the selection, until I have a selection of the entire sky.…
Notice that I'm working with the Contiguous option turned off, so that I …can include the Discontiguous areas of sky in my selection. …
