American Flag – Color Splash

ImageFor the color splash daily creat, I immediately knew I wanted to do something with an American Flag.  It is such an iconic figure and I knew the colors would stand out really well on a black and white background.  Here are the steps I took to create this image:

  1. Open Image
  2. Duplicate Layer
  3. On original picture went to Image> Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and turned Saturation down
  4. Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All
  5. Selction of Flag using Magic Wand, Quick Selection and Lasso Tools
  6. Contol & Backspace to fill with Black to reveal background color.  White Reveals and Black Conceals
  7. Played around with Brightness/Contrast as well as Hue/Saturation under the Image>Adjustments tab.  Did this on the orignal picture layer in order to play with the colors that were coming through the layer mask.
