Gimp Photo Effect Help

Hi,

Would it be possible for someone to point me in the direction of a tutorial or provide some pointers on how to turn a picture from color to black and white but keep certain areas such as babies eyes in color like the example below?

I have done a bit with gimp but no expert to figure it out and can't find a tutorial for it?



Any help will be greatly appreciated

Regards,
JDobbsy1987

Hi JDobbbsy1987,

I was just about to sign out when I saw your thread, but I'll write you a tutorial tomorrow It's just a little use of layer masks.

Hi Jamie,

I've done it I need to add a few finishing touches to the video, captions etc. but here it is:



I went a little bit over the eyelid in the video But apart from that, I think that's it. This is my first ever video tutorial, so I didn't have a clue what to do! If you need any further explanation, then let me know and I'll do my best to answer
