Not too hard, Mike. Use a lasso tool completely around the edges of the car so that the car is "selected". Then, from the Select menu on the toolbar, choose "inverse". Then, back to the tool bar for "image"/ "adjustments"/ "hue & saturation". Slide the saturation bar all the way to the left to go grayscale on all of the picture that doesn't include the car. Finally, back to "Select" on the toolbar and click on "deselect". Save it or go from there for more changes as needed.
If you want to post a good picture here, I could do it in a few minutes, easy.

good info....but wouldnt it have been easier to do everything you said up to the hue saturation and just went with a image>adjusment>desaturation just to grayscale the background???

im sure there's a million ways to do it....i just thought that might've been a lot easier

focuspwr, you're absolutely right. To just desaturate, your way saves a mouse click. However, I got used to selecting "Hue&Saturation" because it gives me the two other options of hue and lightness from the same dialog box. Not that tinkering with hue would make any sense when desaturating, of course.

Detonator, thanks much for the positive feedback. Got to admit, I'm a ho for that stuff.

Here ya go. For each pic, B/W background, plus a bonus set with the backgrounds fuzzed out. This is too easy compared with some of the other stuff I've done recently.
