Hi kizmiaz,

Told you I would be back!!

Just a few points - would have saved me an hour or so - if you could have put into the instructions  - when you duplicate the second layer - first click on the background layer!!
I know - but mugins did not -  :-[ :-[ so perhaps it might save other people some frustration!!

Also is there any way -  if you have 3 people in the photo to capture - say their hair in one go  - instead of 3 layers?

Otherwise your instrustions work great - no to try another photo without opening this page!!

Cheers

Oops, sorry. Thats what comes from writing these things at midnight! I'll go back and amend that as soon as I've posted this reply.

As for the hair. Yes, all the hair can be done as one layer. Select using the lasso tool, and then hold the Shift key down and select the next area around another head. Both areas should be selected, and then just inverse and delete the excess as in Step 2 above. As many areas can be selected as you want using this method.

Hope that helps.

Hi Kizmiaz,
                  If you are using Photoshop elements I would think that
you would use ,Enhance-Colour-Hue/saturation& tick the colorize
box And proceed from there. This is instead of Image- Hue/saturation.
If any body tries this please let us know.

Hi Glen,

Thanks for that tip - thought there would be a way - the trouble with Photoshop 7 that I have just started with - its that it does everything - so long as you know where to look!!

Off to make sure I can do it !!  ;D ;D

Cheers

Thanks for the instructions Kizmiaz. I've given it a go with a photo with not too much detail and in good condition. Too tired tonight to continue but really happy so far with it. I'll get on to her coat and the background tomorrow. I have had Photoshop Elements for years and have never known how to do this. Just used it for fixing tears etc.
You have truly inspired me to find a class somewhere.
Thanks
Jackie

Jackie,
      I am convinced that you ladies are naturally better than a mere male at this sort of thing, for a beginner you are doing fine. By the way I should be back onto your Irish gaurd tommorow - though you seem to be doing better than I am.
