Selective Colorization

Selective Colorization
Text and images Copyright (C) 2002 Eric R. Jeschke and may not be used without permission of the author. Intention In this tutorial I will explain how to convert a color photograph to a B&W one with color restored to selective areas. With the right subject this can give really striking results, as you can see for yourself. The basic technique is to duplicate the color photograph, convert the duplicate to B&W, and paste it as a new layer on top of the color image. Giving credit where credit is due: I did not come up with this method. The Procedure Here is the original example image, loaded into GIMP. Step 1 Duplicate the image (Ctrl+D). In this example, I tried the channel mixer, but ended up in this case preferring a simple conversion to grayscale (Image → Mode → Grayscale), then back to RGB. Step 2 Open the Layers dialog (Ctrl+L). Step 3 Go to the B&W image and select all, then copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C). Step 4 In the Layers dialog, right-click on the B&W layer and select “Add Layer Mask”. ).

Layer Masks GIMP Tutorial - Layer Masks (text & images) by Pat David is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Intention Layer masks are a fundamental tool in image manipulations. They allow you to selectively modify the opacity (transparency) of the layer they belong to. This modification of a layer’s transparency through a mask is non-destructive to the layer itself. This flexibility to define the opacity of different areas of a layer is the basis for more interesting image manipulation techniques such as selective coloring and luminosity masking. Adding a Mask to a Layer Layer masks need to be added to a layer before they can be used. For this example I will use a simple image with only two layers, as shown above. Right-Click on the layer you want to add a mask to (the “Teal” layer in my example), and the Context menu will show an option to Add Layer Mask…: You can also add a layer mask through the menus: There are many options for initializing the Layer Mask.

Bereichsnamen - Drive-Hilfe You can create meaningful categories in your spreadsheets by naming ranges of cells. Naming ranges is a way to assign a name to a cell or a group of cells so that they are easier to keep track of and so that formulas can be created more cleanly. For example, instead of using "A1:B2" to describe a range of cells, you could name the range "budget_total" so that formulas like =SUM(A1:B2, D4:E6) can be simpler and more intuitive written as =SUM(budget_total, quarter2). Create a range name Open your spreadsheet. Guidelines for how to name a range A range name can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores. Delete a range name Open your spreadsheet. When you delete a named range, any formulas referencing this named range will no longer work.
