SEELE as of right now I'm not entirely sure this affect is possible for me because I'm using adobe photoshop elements 2.0
I'm not using the wand; I'm applying a gradient of B/W and I can't figure out how to restore coloir to certain areas.

If you make a black and white layer on top, then you can erase bits of that layer to show the colored layer underneath

Can you select by colour?

If so, I'd do that, which would then select parts of the image with that one colour, and then inverse the selection, making the rest black and white

I think what you're trying to find is the "Leave Color" effect. Select it and choose what color you would like to "Leave". Hope i helped!

Your best bet is to copy the color image onto a new layer and make that black and white, then you can erase parts of that and the color will show from underneath. Another technique you could use, is make your image black and white, and then use the History Brush to start coloring the photograph. You can select which history state you wanna use by using the history window.
