Hi Guyhands,

Just goto the site menu and tutorial section, enter 'Coloring B&W Images' and you'll find a very good tutorial that'l get you started; but if you've got any cash left after Christmas you could also buy a couple of books by Katrin Eismann, Photoshop Restoration & Retouching and Photoshop Masking & Compositing, which are, in my opinion, possibly the best books ever published concerning Photoshop.

Enjoy.

Regards,

Chriscb.

Hi Guyhands,

Not a problem - I'm pleased to be able to give back to this rather special web site!

To Bonnylass - those books by Eismann are so full of useful techniques that would take years to learn, plus the books have websites with graphics to practice with as well as reading the books. Downside is that they are very expensive - but worth it.

Regards,

Chriscb
