Applying Color to parts of a B&W Picture - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I have a color picture of my daughter in bluejean overalls, I would like the picture to be black and white, but I also would like to retain a light blue tone on the jeans only. What would be the best method / effect to accomplish this in PS 6.0? Thanks, Jim...

    Jim,

    If you have access to the Adobe Expert Center, you'll find a fine
    tutorial in accomplish exactly that.

    <http://studio.adobe.com/expertcenter/photoshop/main.html>
    Look under 'Color and color management' > 'Selective coloring'.

    Thanks for your help... I'm new at all this, more a database guy than an artist.

    make a copy layer. desaturate it.

    1) paint over the jeans w/ the brush in color mode/

    or

    2) select the pants with your fav selection method. A combination of lasso and quick mask works quite well. Use Image> Hue/Sat. check the colorize box.
