How To Create the Color Splash Effect On a Mac

You can use the Mac Photos app to highlight one color in a photo and desaturate the rest. You can also do different things with different colors. A third-party app like Pixelmator Pro can be used as an external editor to saturate a color in only part of an image.

    Really helpful! Thanks, Gary. (BTW, looking good in that new camera-angle! 😃)

    Hey Gary! Thanks for all these great videos. I see that there is Pixelmator & Pixelmator Pro bundle. In your opinion, should I save $10 and just get Pixelmator Pro, or is there an advantage to having both?

    Dean: I’m not sure why you would need Pixelmator if you have Pixelmator Pro. I have both because I had Pixelmator before Pixelmator Pro existed. But I haven’t use the first in a long time for anything.

    Another great video. Gary, can I ask, how many “takes” does it normally take you to create one of these videos? You make it look so easy and I know, from personal experience, it is not easy.

    Gene: I’ve changed my technique many times over the years. Right now, I just shoot 10-30 minutes straight, sometimes with me repeating the same sentence a few times to get it right. Then I edit it down to make sense.

    I am running Mojave on my Mac book pro and do not see the color splash tools ie ability to saturate colours in my editing choices Why? Also I am creating a legacy photo book for my grandchildren and would like to understand the photo editing tools better . Where can I see comprehensive info on this ?

    Daniela: I’m using a new version of Photos (Catalina) in this video. I can’t remember which tools are available in that older version.
