Default Photoshop Question
How do i filter all colors out except one or so in a certain area, like I want only the colors on me in a picture to show and the rest be black and white.

ok.
First right click on the Lasso tool and choose the polygonal one, change the feather to about 5, you can toy with this setting until it looks good.

Now select the area you want to be colored, once selected right click inside of it and hit 'select inverse'. The polygonal tool is pretty simple to use, click where you want to start and move your mouse to the next location where you have to change direction or curve, click again and move your mouse from there, finish the selection by connecting back to the spot where you started.

Now go to Image -> Mode -> Grayscale

Hope this helped

Another method is to create show all mask layer..

1. First duplicate the original image.. Hit shift+D to duplicate the active image.

2. Now convert one to greyscale. Go to Image -> Greyscale

3. Select the greyscale image hit ctrl+c (this copys the greyscale to the clipboard)

4. Select the original color image and hit ctrl + L (this takes the greyscale copy from the clipboard and paste it on to the original as a new raster layer)

5. With your original selected locate your layers tool bar and you'll see you have a color layer and a greyscale layer.

6. Select the greyscale layer from the layers tool bar - then right click and hit create a new mask layer. (show all) (this creates another layer which is displayed as a white canvas)

7. Select this white canvas layer and then select a paint brush tool with solid black as the color.

8. Now just run your black paint brush over the areas to that you want to reveal color.
(Now worry if you mess up) Just grab a white paint brush to paint areas back to greyscale.

When working with masks remember. Black colors reveal the layers thats underneath -- and white covers using the highest promoted layer. (Which in your case would be the greyscale)

try
- Creating a new Hue/Saturation adjustment layer (that's the button with the circle where half of it is black and the other half is white) then bring the hue and saturation right down (in the window that pops up when you click that the button). Then use the eraser tool over the parts you want in color.

- Another approach would be using the pen tool to 'select' the area you want to keep as colored (or if you want to modify that coloring too... like 50% saturated etc.), then right click in the selection and choose 'layer via copy'. that new layer will be specifically that cutout to hover over the main image. now select the main image layer, and modify it's hue/saturation to nil to omit it's coloring, and the layer above will retain it's color.
you now then can select that above layer (that handband that you cut out and layer-via-copy) and you can then choose to modify that if so desired.
