    Hi all...
    My question is in the thread title, but here it is again:
    Is there an app for the Mac like Color Splash for the iPhone?​

    See the picture below if you don't know what I am talking about.

    I know everyone is going to come back and say that it is possible to do with an app like Photoshop or Pixelmator, but I want to know if there is an easier way to accomplish this in a faster way, with a dedicated app or an app that includes this feature.

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott

    I don't think so. Preview can remove colors completely using Alpha to make it transparent, but I don't want to do that. I want to make everything black and white except for certain parts/colors.

    I don’t know of an application specifically for that, but [URL="http://seashore.sourceforge.net/The_Seashore_Project/About.html”]Seashore[/URL] can do it without too much hassle. Just open the image with it, go to Layer>Duplicate Layer, select the bottom layer, and go to Selection>Colour Effect>Convert to Greyscale. Then select the top layer, and go to Layer>Enable Alpha Channel. Then just use the eraser tool.

    Hope that helps:p
