Sophis, they explained a little while ago that the idea here is to post when you get a chance, anytime.Grin

ok thanks will have to spend more time reading through things, theres just so much info on this site I don't know where to start Grin

I thought I'd add another image on this theme having just read through the desaturate tutorial I took my son out in the garden to try and get a nice image to work with, but he's learning so fast (probably from his dad) how to ignore Mummy lol, So the image below is all I ended up with.

I don't have paint shop pro but used the alternatives in CS5 (trial version - I'll be gutted when it expires) I selected my son using the quick select tool refined the edges to get a better selection, slightly desaturated him, and gave hime a curves boost. I then inversed the selection and desaturated the background quite a lot.

I have shown original (last image) as well as worked on image, I'm not sure I like the result on this image but thought I'd share it anyway and thanks for the tutorial it will certainly come in handy for other images.

lol Grin thanks for the advice but I had read through that (honestly), no it was to do with not knowing you could post images up at a later date, I thought the idea of the photo month was to get the images for each day, and post them on that day, but I've just read through a load of forum topics on it and will hopefully be joining in with this on a more regular basis, now.
