Hue / Saturation in Photoshop CS5

Posted on March 17th, 2011 | 9 Comments

Hue / Saturation in Photoshop Tutorial. In this tutorial, we are going to use the Hue/Saturation Tool to take color out of the entire image, except for the part that we want colored. Create a mix of stylish black and white – with a touch of color. But only as much colour as you realy need. It gives your simple picture a pretty stylish touch. Follow the steps below, it is easier then you think.


1)  Open any image in Adobe Photoshop (CTRL+O). This is the image that I am using for this tutorial:

2)  Using the Quick Selection Tool, select the part of the image that you want colored. If you have selected a part of the image that you wish to deselect, press the ALT key and left-click on that area to deselect it.

3)  Once you are done with the selection, right-click inside the selection and choose Select Inverse. This selects the entire image except for the part you selected earlier.

4)  Go to Image > Adjustment > Hue/Saturation (CTRL+U).

5)  Drag the slider for the Saturation onto the left hand side. This removes the color from the image except for the part you had selected in Step 2.

That’s it, babe.

Final Result:

Awesome hue / saturation in Photoshop

    Thanks for taking the time to write this. It’s kind of the oldest trick in the book though. I’ve seen this same tutorial several times. Also, you didn’t chose the best image for this tutorial, the butterfly hardly has any color in it. None-the-less good tutorial.
