Color Isolation on Black and White Images

Nancy requested information  how to create color isolation on black and white images.  I have a complicated directions using PhotoShop CS3, you are unable to my directions on other programs like Adobe Elements and Paint Shop Pro. 

I asked two of my very talented friends Reb
and Sharon from Canada, their directions and found you can apply to all the programs listed above, following the below steps.  And it is easy!!!

Here we go:

*Open a picture

*Create a new layer

*Convert your new layer to black and white.  Click OK.

*Using the your easer tool (you can size your eraser), erase the black and white, exposing color in the picture you wish to expose.

*Flatten or Merge you newly created image

*Save your image to jpeg format. 

Create your color isolation, return to my entry and link your creation :). I will enjoy seeing your image.

How very nice of you, Betty!  Thank you.
Although it may seem easy, I am such the novice.   BUT...I will give it a go as soon as I can.
Thanks again!

I also have a color isolation on my camera itself, but it highlights a color rather than an object, so it wouldn't work for your barn door.

I have never taken the time to work with layer's in PaintShopPro 7 (an old version that suits my graphic purpose's).    I use my clone tool and can do the same thing.     I think your subject matter ol the old tin roof wooden building, highlighting the sliding doors the faded red is outstanding.    This form of photography is interesting.    mark

When using the clone tool I am using two identical images in two windows.    mark
