Grayscale Background

Hi

I have a photo of a flower and would like to convert the image to grayscale whilst leaving the flower in its original colors.

Is this possible in GIMP - if so can someone point me to a tutorial or documentation.

Thanks

Paul

Your best bet would be to duplicate the layer, gray-scale the bottom layer, and then carefully mask out the top layer to reveal the monotone image below.

I'm not too familiar with GIMP any longer, so I'm not as sure with masking and adjusting procedures as I am with Photoshop.
