    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum, but I have spoken with 2 people now who have pictures that are black and white with color splashed in. When I asked them how they did that or what software they used....they said it was a setting their friends used ON their camera.

    Does anyone know what setting this could be? I have 3 cameras I can work with on this and I have looked through the manuals and see nothing on doing this directly on the camera. I know you can do it in photo editing software, but I would love to be able to do it directly on the camera if possible.

    These are the cameras I have:

    Olympus E-510 (Digital SLR)
    Olympus Stylus 730
    Olympus Stylus 770 SW (waterproof camera)

    My husband has the Olympus E-500 (digital SLR)

    So...does anyone have any suggestions or know the setting that does this??? My cameras arent really old, but I guess it could be a new setting??? Any help would be great! I leave for vacation on Sunday and would love to have it figured out by then!:heart:

    I have never heard of being able to do this in camera. It wouldn't make sense to be able to select where you wanted your color at. That is if you are referring to B&W images with select color.

    There are not any cameras I know of that do this either. It is all done in post processing.

    I hate to break the bad news to you but those informants of yours are, as we would say where I come from, pulling your leg. Well that or they are dumber than a sack of rocks. What you are referring to is call selective color and is a post processing function, not an in camera function. Here is how it is done.

    Some Canon point-and-shoots do this in camera, though it can be done pretty easily in post.

    It's true, on the SD750 you can select a color and turn everything else monochrome. But you cannot select a particular subject unless that subject has one color (i.e. flower).

    i have a student who does this with her point and shoot on a regular basis.

    i ws amazed at just what these p&s cameras are programmed to do these days.

    Don't know which camera she was using, but i do think it was a cannon of some flavor.

    Yes, you see it all the times in teenage girls myspace pics. Im pretty sure you just choose a color and it elimanates all other colors.


    I think its funny how most people here cant work a P&S for their life, haha

    Yeah both the Canon SD750 and SD1000 do this. They are just point and shoots. Its neat but thats about it

    They also have a color "swap" feature that will replace one color with another in the photo, however it doesn't work very well
