July 15, 2009

Can’t see the video? Go to

In this tutorial, I go though the process of changing colors of objects in Photoshop. I also cover basic adjustment layer masking and how to make everything black and white except for one object. Also known as the “Pleasantville Effect”

Subscribe to Greyscale Mail Newsletter for early info and details about my first training series, Making Cool Shit – “Photoshop for Photographers.”


  • Name it like Andrew Kramer’s new Action Essentials 2, like Photoshop Essentials or something like that ( i’m just saying, i really like to use “essentials” in prety much everithing, so now you can see my lack of ideas xD)

  • I like to use the term “huesatch”. As in, “yo, what don’t you huesatch that bitch up so it pops?”

  • How about calling it ‘PhotoFlow – Photoshop for Photographers’. I think it sounds sorta catchy. Photo is for photos, obviously, and Flow is for work flow. 🙂

  • The photoshop training tips sound cool, looking forward to seeing what you offer.

  • what is the secret of your hair grows ?

    Nice effect, thanks for the advise


  • A little constructive criticism, please slow down and show us (the audience) what tools you used to do what.
    Secondly you look good on camera and seem pretty comfortable, however you should practice your training and try to eliminate the ‘ah’s I believe there were over 20 ahs in this short video.
    Overall though I would said looks very good A-

    • Thanks for the critique Jay. I usually turn on the Keystroke recorder so you can see what tools and keys I press. That usually helps. As far as the as and the nose touching, those are the two things I’m working on. Keep me in line!


      • why working on yourself Nick?
        that’s you man!
        if people can’t take it, they should not watch your videoblog.
        Keep being what you are and do it naturally as always.

        and for the critics on speed of the tuts, i think it’s not necessary to stretch a tut from 10 to 20 minutes just to explain every bit and that.

        people should take the manual, get yourself cozy with the tools and commands and you’ll me much happier watching shorter tutorials.


  • Nick, is the iPhone 3G S really worth it?, im planing on getting one, but without the AT&T contract.
    I’m a student programmer, so if you could give me some tips about the programming ambient of the phone, that would be really aprecited. (Is Java or C++ oriented)

    I liked your App btw!

  • photoshop again yeah! (you could call your book like that too)

  • Very cool. I’m always interested in seeing other peoples workflow from within photoshop. Definately going to have to dive more into the adjustment layers.

    BTW, the tutorials should definately be called PHOTOFOXY (the lady not the animal)

  • I’m curious to discover out what blog system you are utilizing? I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest web page and I would like to uncover some thing more risk-free. Do you might have any suggestions?

  • I was very ecstatic to find this site on yahoo.I wished to say many thanks to you with regard to this wonderful read!! I certainlyloved every little bit of it and I’ve you bookmarked to have a look at new stuff you post.
