Channel Play

Here's another fun project from Photojojo.  In this tutorial, they show you how to make a color image from three black and white photos using channels.

In Photoshop, you'll switch your Layers palette over to Channels and work there.  Select and copy a different channel from each of your three photos and paste them into a new image.  You can play with the channels until you find the look you're going for in your finished image.

I really think you're going to love this little experiment!  I tried not to go overboard like I usually do with new techniques.  So, I only made three of these images... so far.  EDIT:  Now, I'm up to five.   :)
