    Hi,

    I have a coloured photo. In this picture, there is a teddy bear; I
    wanted to use photoshop to create make the picture black and white
    EXCEPT the teddy bear.

    Hence, in the picture, only the teddy bear remains coloured. How to go
    about doing that?

    Any pointers?

    Please advise.

    Thanks
    Steven

    Select the bear, select - inverse, adjustment layer of type hue/sat
    with sat -100 or adjustment layer of type channel mixer and check
    'monochrome' ... there are other ways but these should work easily once
    you get the selection of the bear right.

    My advice would be don't it. It's such a naff and cliche effect...

    one way would be :
    Image>Mode>Grayscale
    then Image>Mode>RGB
    use history brush on bear
