Hi Nancy

Thanks for your comments.
I used the channel mixer to do my second picture.

Duplicate the Background

New adjustment Layer > Channel mixer. Check the Monochrome Box and move the Red Slider to 106. This changes the Red Shirt to White

Select the Grey area. Then
New adjustment Layer > Channel mixer. Check the Monochrome Box and move the Red Slider to 80 and Green slider to 40. This changes the Grey Shirt to White.

New layer and Clone out the join between the Red and Grey areas

Select the Original white areas (Collar) and reduced the levels to match the shirt.

That’s the Shirt done. But the whole picture is now Black and White.

Duplicate the background again and drag it to the top of the stack, add a layer mask and paint back the White Shirt.

Hope this helps.

Ken

Hi Ken,
Thanks for taking the time to list the steps you took; it is appreciated. I followed your steps but then had two adjustment layers, that were monochrome, (including his face) on top and the duped original underneth (refer to pix)... I started again but this time selected just the shirt before I did the adjustment layer, and followed your steps from there (had to change some of the values on the channel mixer). This is the end results (which works!)... If I had followed your steps exactly, how would I merge the adjustment layers and the duped original and keep the color in the boys face? Thanks again,
~Nancy~

Hi Nancy

I’ve just amended the instructions. Sorry if they were not very clear.
Your way works just as well.

Ken

Thanks Ken..

I just figures another way.... to the same outcome. From your instructions where there are two adjustment layers, the original and the duped original. I turned off the original layer and "merged visible" the the other layers. With the history brush set to the original (after adjusting curves) I used the history brush to paint the boys face back in.
Thanks again for your help Ken! It's great being able to find new and easier ways to work...
