Photo Black & Color adds art to your photos [Freeware]


One of the most dramatic artistic touches you can add to a photo is the desaturated background effect, which retains the color in a primary subject and reduces the rest of the image to a greyscale finish. The problem is it’s typically difficult to achieve with programs such as Photoshop. Now there’s an easier way to do it just by pointing and clicking.

Photo Black & Color lets you desaturate (i.e. turn into black and white) any portion of an image you want. The program works by letting you select the colored areas you want to keep by clicking on them with the mouse. Once you’ve selected a few representative parts of the image, the program will automatically reduce the remainder to black and white. It’s fast, accurate and depending on the composition of your photo can deliver some great results.
