Great Aluel 2010-10-04 2:08

I like the local color effect and subject of this photo. I just wonder how to achieve this metallic-surreal effect? Asking for tips. Thanks in advance :)

Default To Aluel: Effect in photoshop

Hi Aluel,

Thank you for your critique.

I used photoshop to create the effect.

Go to adjustment layer, choose curves - in the bar that appears on the right create a bend that looks like an elongated S. This should create heavy saturation.

In the next step you need to create a new layer, make this new layer all black and set the blending mode to 'hue'. then change the opacity of this to about 50%.

You should now have this effect - looks good on some images doesn't work on others.

Good luck
