1 Se­lec­tive colour and mask

Open your im­age in Pho­to­shop and du­pli­cate the layer, (Cmd/Ctrl+J). Then click on Se­lect>Color Range. The cur­sor changes into an eye­drop­per, so click and hold over the yel­low dress, hold Shift si­mul­ta­ne­ously and drag your cur­sor around the yel­low. Click OK and the whole dress should be se­lected.

2 B&W ad­just­ment layer

Hit Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+I to in­vert the se­lec­tion. Click the Cre­ate New Fill or Ad­just­ment Layer icon at the bot­tom of the Lay­ers pal­ette. Click on Black & White… and your im­age will be trans­formed to mono and yel­low. Se­lect the Brush (B) tool with white as the fore­ground colour and brush over any sec­tions still not mono­chrome.

3 Make the logo shine

Make a new layer (Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+N) and click OK. Now use the eye­drop­per tool (I) to se­lect a bright yel­low on the dress. Then se­lect the Brush tool (B) and paint over the logo, be­ing as neat as pos­si­ble. Then change the layer’s Blend­ing Mode to Color.
