Using Photosuite, there is only one way I know of to do what you want, and it can be very tedious. Here is how:

 

1. Open you color picture in Photosuite.

2. In the Task Pane window, click the ALL tab, click the down arrow for Tools, and select Mask/Cutout Edge Tracing.

3. Here is the tedious part. Follow the directions in the window and trace around the object you want to change to black and white. Somethings that help with accurate tracing are to zoom in on the object and take small steps when tracing.

4. Click Done Tracing when complete. Hint - If the object you want to remain color is less complicated to trace, trace that object and then click the Invert Selection Button.

5. Click the down arrow for the Enhance tab in the Task Pane window

6. Select Special Effects, find the Black and white effect, and click it. The traced area should turn black and white while the rest of the picture remains in color (or just the opposite if Invert Selection was used in

step 4).

 

That all may sound complicated, but it is rather easy after you have done it once or twice. The tracing will always be somewhat tedious especially when you have to trace a very irregular object.

 

The attachment shows the results.

 

THANK YOU!! I've been trying to figure it out for a while and was getting frustrated... I will give it a try when I go to my aunt's house tomorrow...

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to do colorspotting with Roxio products? What I mean by colorspotting for example is when everything is black and white except the flowers are in color... Thanks in advance!
