It's so easy on my ipad with effects blur etc and then there is a great colour picker.

But not in photoshop. So now I find my self doing stuff in a £1.99 pad app which cannot be done in photoshop then and copying into photoshop!!

I know there is meant to be a better colour picker but can I get my Open GL open no it is all greyed out.

I am using a MacBook Pro running OSX 10.6.8

People have been doing this in Photoshop for many years.

Duplicate the layer, add a layer mask, apply the effects, paint in the layer mask to show or hide the part you want.
