Erm, sorta of. I know absolutely nothing about photoshop or the like, I am more of an MS Paint kinda guy.

No, I just took two pictures, b/w and color. I then copied the color part over to the b/w. It's not that great, but I wanted to try something different.

very cool effect, I like it. The possibilities are endless with an effect like that. Theres gotta be a way in photoshop to do that, but I havent figured it out yet.

I won't even try with PS...I just don't understand a damn thing on that program. I was thinking of Sin City (the movie) when I tried to do this...they way they use color in that movie is excellent.

Just search through online PS tutorials. Many effects like the above are easier to do than you might think.
