I have color photo that I would like make part of it B&W and leave the rest color. I tried using masks but I can't seem to get it to work.
Try making a selection and put that selection in a new layer and then make that layer B&W.
You're welcome. Glad to help.
Try this using the Expert tab:
1. Open the picture file
2. Use one of the selection tools, e.g. lasso tool or selection brush, to select the area that will be B&W
3. Place the selection on its own layer - press CRL+J
4. Open a solid color fill adjustment layer above this. In the dialog that opens, be sure that black is selected
5. Group the top 2 layers - press CTRL+G
