What do you call a picture that all of it is in b&w except for a certain area?

someone has a picture that all of it is in black and white except for a certain area? Like only someones hat is in color and the rest is black and white.

If anyone knows how to do this easily, please explain.

Thanks.

It's called "tinting". The image is in black and white and the colors are added in manually (used to be done with only paint, markers, etc., but now is done with graphics programs, as well).

There is a mini-discussion on how this is applied to movies, that may help you out.

Thanks.
Photoshop:
- duplicate your layer so that you have two copies of the photo on top of each other.
- desaturate the bottom layer so it becomes b&w
- select (wand, lasso, quickmask) the area you want in color on the top layer.
- hit the mask button at the bottom of your layers window.

voila!

I don't think it's good enough. It would never catch on.

A b&w picture that is almost, but not entirely unlike, a colored picture.

I'd disagree on all of the above. It depends on how well it is done. Here is a collage I did of my daughter.
