Digital Camera Software Question !
I need your help.
I know alot of you are wizzards with photo editing, I see your work posted here all the time !
My question is this:
I have an Olympus Digital camera (that I love BTW) and it came with its "Camedia" software. It is ok, but I am trying to do the following and maybe you can help me find software that will do this.
I want to take a photo and convert to black and white. This is easy enuff. But then I want to highlight a very small portion or object in the picture and change it back to color. You may have seen this technique with childrens photos in the past.
I have heard that the way this is accomplished is to put to versions on top of each other with a B&W on top and a Color on bottom. Then you cut the portion of the B&W out that you do not want stack the two on top of each other. The result is everything is B&W except the part that you cut out.
This is probably a snap with Adobe Photoshop, but I dont have $600 lying around to spend on software. Any suggestions would be great.
