Colour Pop Technique in Lightroom

The Aim of this Instructable is to show how to do a simple colour pop technique in Adobe Lightroom without photoshop. This is also quicker than the photoshop method.

Be kind as this is my first instructable

Step 1: Pick Your Photo

 chose a photo that has a splash of colour e.g. a flower .
Next go to the develop module and select the adjustment Brush

Step 2: Make It Greyscale

 Click on the - Button in the adjustment brush panel this will make the brush make your picture b/w
Make the brush as big as possible and paint over the picture (Make sure auto mask is off) - it should go black and white

Step 3: Add Some Colour

 Next click new in the adjustment brush panel
Then click the + button next to saturation
Now make your brush the size you want that gives you good control and turn on auto mask
now paint over the area you want in colour

And your done
