By the way Jaxx, when you said "add a black/white adjustment layer" did you mean just desaturate? because thats what I did
Either way it doesn't matter. The end result just needs to be black and white in order to make it a mask.

Re: Crazy Lady

hey, i wasnt complaining, just curious. in fact, i was thinking once, of making a study of black and whites to see if one could tell from the shade what the real hair color truly was (or eyes or anything else, for that matter). i suspect, from what studies i've done on this, that her original hair color was a medium to light brown, but quite possibly had a bit of red in it, also.
