- [Voiceover] Welcome My name is Chris Orwig and I'll be your host and guide in this course, as we focus in on how we can use Photoshop techniques to emphasize and enhance color in our photographs. And in this course we'll talk about how we can created what's called the color splash effect. How we can remove color from the entire image except for a selected area. We'll also look at how we can do some hand coloring and how we can create this look in a traditional way or a more modern way where we change the background and also the overall color palette of the picture.

We'll look at how we can colorize a photograph, which is all about adding a color or colors on top of a gray scale image. And how we can use masking and adjustment layers in order to target a particular color in a photograph. And in addition we'll look at how we can create some vivid and vibrant colors as well. So thanks for joining me let's begin.
