I you have photoshop tutorials which I download from Web Design Company
Does anyone know how to take a color photo and make it completely black&white, except for one or two parts..?
for example..say you have a picture of a little girl holding flowers, well how would you make the entire picture black&white, except for the flowers, which i would like to stay in color?

A simple method for a beginner would be to Duplicate the layer (Command+J), then make the new layer B&W. Then use the eraser tool to erase the B&W parts (that is, erase the B&W flowers which would reveal the colour layer underneath). If you want something more advanced and accurate, lemme know.

Canon's smaller P&S cameras has this capability built into the camera, and it works great. I play with that function all the time on my A610 'small camera'.
