Photoshop Coloring Question? Answered

Hi!

I have a really old version of Photoshop, it came with adobe creative suite 2... Anyway, I'm working on a project and I need to image black and white (grayscale, I guess) except for a single object in the picture. That will be in color. I have never used this program before and could use a few pointers on how to do this, being a total amateur. 

Thanks!

You have a couple of options- you can either duplicate the layer, desaturate the new layer, and erase the part you want in color; or you can do a color selection on your layer (which gives you control over how much of the color you want to show), copy and paste your selection and go back and desaturate the layer below. You can find a more thorough explanation here.
