i was just playing around in photoshop, and realized that i wanted to B&W a photo.. but, i dont know how! someone wanna give me a hand?

also, is there a better way to crop out a car from a background rather than the lasso tool?
BlackJack
gave you the answer to the first question..dunno about the second one..i mainly use the magic tool

the B&W is just a matter of lowering the saturation to 0...

and as for selecting the car from a background, there is the magic wand, but for any sort of good accuracy, youre gonna have to rough it out with the polygonal lasso tool.

or just go.

imgae, adjust, desaturate

i use the polygonal lasso for cutting everything out
jbzonda
or shift+control+U to desaturate.

try to use the diffuse glow effect or sth like that

You can duplicate a layer and make the top layer a semi transparent one. (play around with vivid, multiply etc effect) And then Gaussian blur the bottom layer. It will look like this; .

This is diffuse glow, choose the two colors you want to use on the toolbar and then filter diffuse glow.



Then you can go to edit and fade whatever effects you added. As you can see they are all quite similar even with drastically different settings. Please excuse the quality as I didn't want to link to fullsize imagery.
