Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Creative color reduction, part of Photoshop CS5: Athletic Retouching Projects.
Next, I want to experiment a little bit with color and tone.…There's so much that we can do here.…It's really subjectively up to you what you want to do.…Yet, one of the things that I want to try with this image is I want to…experiment with toning this in kind of a creative way, maybe a cross-processed…or duo-tone type of a look.…I also want to experiment a little bit with desaturating a lot of the image, and…just leaving the saturation in one area on the shirt.…So, let's go ahead and start to tinker a bit with color and tone.…In order to do that, first let's press the W key to select the Quick Select…tool. And here, on this layer, I'm simply going to click and drag across the red shirt.…
Now, this gives me a decent selection, although it gave me a little bit of…a problem over here. No big deal.…Hold down the Option key on a Mac, Alt key on Windows, and then go ahead and…paint away the area that you don't want to select, and then go back and just…paint on the area you do want to select.…So, in this way, you can kind of go back and forth until you have a decent selection.…
