The easiest way to do it is to open up the pic in photoshop or GIMP and find the color you want to preserve. These instructions are for PS, Gimp is pretty much the same, however.

Select it with the magic wand (and if you uncheck the "contiguous" box, it will select everything of that color)... you can fine tune what you select by using the lasso tool and the shift button to add to your selections or the alt button to subtract from it if you grab too much... zooming in is very helpful in this process.

Anyway, once you select everything of the color you want, right click and choose "select inverse" (you have to be on the "rectangle" select tool to find that in the right click menu... you could also "select inverse" from Select --> Select Inverse... or you could use [ctrl]+[shift]+[i]) and then go to Image --> Adjustments --> Desaturate.

That's how to do it. If this isn't clear enough, I can do a little pictoral tutorial for it... it's damned easy.

I was teaching one of Shell's young cousins how to do this and here's the result of her attempt... only took about 15 minutes her first time (note that she also grabbed the flowers on the lapel, also):

Another cool little tip... once you desaturate, you can always go into Image --> Adjustments --> Hue/Saturation and change the colors of the colored objects.

Me too.
I have Elements.
Would love to figure out how to do B&W with some things in color.
I guess it is a "layers" thing?
