But, do you know how to add color to highlight the subject in black and white image? To get this effect, you can use Photoshop techniques. So, here is the technique that can help you to get desired effect in black and white images.
Magnetic lasso technique
First of all, make a copy of original file and use it for making necessary changes.
The magnetic lasso is the most powerful tool of Photoshop and also suitable for selecting objects with high contrast backgrounds. It is visible with group of two other tools in tool design box.
Now, click the edge point on the targeted area of your image, which creates an anchor point. Next trace the outline of the targeted area.
