Expose an object in color using Photoshop

A simple Photoshop tutorial, where you may learn how to expose an object by leaving it in color while turning the rest of the photo black and white or sepia.

1.
 

Open a colour photograph where you want to expose something.

I have opened a Nascar racing photo.

 
 
2.
 

Then select Quick Selection Tool (W).

 
 
3.
 

And select the object you want to expose.

I have selected a car.

 
 
4.
 

Click above on Select and select Inverse.

 
 
5.
 

Then select the Eyedropper Tool (I).

 
 
6.
 

Click anywhere on picture except the object you have just selected.

That tool will pick up the colour on that spot and we will use it at the end to colourize the area around.

 
 
7.
 

Selected colour will be seen as first colour (see the pic).

 
 
8.
 

Click on Create new fill or adjustment layer...

 
 
9.
 

... and select Hue/Saturation...

 
 
10.
 

New window will show up, where you set Saturation to minimum.

 
 
11.
 

Your picture will lost the colours, only the selected object will remain them.

 
 
12.
 

Click twice on adjustment layer ...

 
 
13.
 

And select Colorize.

 
 
14.
 

Voila.
