Color Fragments Effect on the Black-and-White Photo
Here is one more tutorial photo effect tutorial where I’ll teach u how to create color fragments effect on the black white photo.

So, let’s start! Well, first off you’ll want to start by finding a nice stock photo on the stock photo websites or on the Google Images or feel free to use my own. Open up the picture.

Use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to create dress selection of the first woman, then press Ctrl+J to copy selected part of image on the new layer.

Time to create studio background. Create a new one layer and use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to create selection as on my picture below. Fill selected area with dark grey color (#444444). Then set opacity up to 70% for this layer and change layer mode to Hard Light.
