    Hello have wanted to know how to do this for quite a bit.
    I have an example.

    I have the gimp and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 to work with.

    I prefer working with gimp if i can (Corel is on my other computer)

    would love any help you can give.(-:

    I got it :thumbup:

    What do you think? It is my first selective B/W.

    A little bit choppy but it is mostly a test

    There is probably a better way but this is what I did.

    First off i used the GIMP. (it is what was handy)

    First i used the "free select" tool to select the part i wanted to keep.

    Second I went "select" than "Invert" (i think Ctrl i works to)

    Third I went to "colors" than slid the saturation down all the way.

    Hope this helped.

    I am still open for any suggestions :wink:
