    Tom, that looks waaaay better than the one I crapped out. ;)

    NICE

    Did you just modify the settings a little bit, or did you take a whole new approach? I'm sure there are billions of ways to do this.

    Thanks Kyle!

    The way I did it was actually pretty simple. I didn't do any of the selecting and deleting or any of that.

    Should I post my steps?

    Did you just change the hue and colorize it??
    I tried that method but lost all of the black data.

    OK, here's the tutorial, my version. It's for intermediate users, but beginners might be able to follow along.

    We're going to be using the same Arnie pic that Kyle originally used because it's a good choice.




    1. Create a mask that will separate Arnie from the background. You can use any method you like, such as Select > Color Range or whatever you like. I usually go into the channels layer and find the channel with the best contrast between to background and foreground, duplicate that layer, and then create a mask based on that.

    It's important that you create a mask instead of just erasing part of the image.

    Your layer pallet will look like this when you're done:





    2. Add a new adjustment layer. At the bottom of the Layers pallet, click the half black / half white circle and choose "Solid Color".




    Now drag your new layer under the Arnie layer, like so:



    3. Add a new adjustment layer. Make it a Hue / Saturation layer.

    Drag the Saturation slider all the way to the left to get rid of any color.


    4. Add a new adjustment layer. Make this one a Levels layer. Adjust the levels until you blow out what you want in the face and crush the blacks a bit. Don't worry about the colored background yet. What you're left with should look something like so:




    5. This next step might be tricky if you've never seen it before. What you need to do is mask a layer based on a layer below it. How you do this is by alt-clicking between layers. Hold the alt key and click right between the lower adjustment layer (Hue / Saturation) and the Arnie layer. Your mouse will turn into a grouping icon, like so:




    6. Do the same for the Levels adjustment layer. Your layer palette should now look like this:




    7. Now set your Arnie layer to "Multiply" as the layer mode.

    Go back to your Levels layer and tweak it until you have the result you're happy with. Something like this:





    The nice thing about this method is that you can tweak the levels as much as you'd like and not have to worry about screwing up the original image.
