    I did sepia since the picture was so washed out and one in black and white, now if I can only keep the skin tone like it appears in the black and white or sepia and keep her eyes the same blue and the hat red I would be so happy not sure how to do it can anyone help me.

    the whole picture is one big washout. You can't fix that easily in photoshop. There's nothing there to recover.

    yes, its totally overexposed and you wont bring back detail to her face...
    however, if you really want to use it, and get the red / blue, then you start by making a duplicate layer, changing that dupe layer to b&w (desaturate) and then select eraser and eraser away the hat & eyes, carefully, it will eraser the top, b&w layer and reveal the colour below.
    if you have a magic wand tool, you can select the hat and eyes that way and erase quickly without fussing with the edges.

    flatten...voila...done

    You can achieve this in PSP by the following:

    1. Open pic
    2. Make a new adjustment layer > Hue/Saturation/Lightness layer
    3. On MASTER, take it to -100, this will put the pic in B&W
    4. Click the EDIT SELECTION TOOL in the Layer Palette. Then click on the NEW LAYER you just made (usually white rectangle).
    5. Click on the paint brush in the tools. Use a black brush and brush over the area you want color. White turns it back to B&W.

    Yes inicially I had a post asking if the washed out part could be fixed then I saw that this was not the area to ask about how too's so I moved it here this is what I wanted when I mentioned keeping eyes and hat

    Here is the one you did but it was not exactly what I was looking for I responded stating it was not exactly what I was looking for and thanked you for your time for trying.

    Oh really?

    I think there's a lot there to recover. Sure, some stuff.. You just can't.. But, photoshop can see more than you. :p

    truthfully that last picture destroys her entire face. her face is very blown out though which takes away from her features but the selective coloring does work for this shot
