Tutorial #1 & #2.  
First tutorials of my new community. Hope you like it. :)

BOTH USE: PHOTOSHOP 7.0

How to go from this: to this:

Start off with your base, which in this case would be this large, stock image.

Crop, resize, do whatever you like. I resized, but I didn't yet crop it.

1) SELECTIVE COLOR
reds
cyan: -100
magenta: -100
yellow: -100
black: -100
yellows
cyan: -68
magenta: -21
yellow: 100
black: 0
greens
cyan: 100
magenta: 100
yellow: 100
black: 100
cyans
cyan: 100
magenta: -34
yellow: 100
black: 100
blues
cyan: 59
magenta: 45
yellow: 100
black: -28

2) CURVES
rgb
input: 124
output: 168

3) COLOR BALANCE
midtones 21, 12, -15
shadows -45, -21, -45
preserve luminosity ON.

4) HUE/SATURATION
master 0, 24, 0

5) Fill new layer with #340505. Set to EXCLUSION @ 100% opacity.

6) Duplicate base and drag it to the top. Set to SOFT LIGHT @ 100% opacity.

7) Fill new layer with #d7dd33. Set to SOFT LIGHT @ 100% opacity.

8) Fill new layer with #719bfa. Set to SOFT LIGHT @ 100% opacity.

And you're done! Your final result should look something like this.


How to go from this: to this: or this:

Start off with your base, obviously, and crop, resize, sharpen, blur, do whatever you need to so you can be satisfied with it. I didn't do anything.

1) Fill new layer with #1a0202. Set to EXCLUSION @ 100% opacity.

2) Fill new layer with #567faa. Set to SOFT LIGHT @ 80% opacity.

3) COLOR BALANCE
midtones 45, -12, 30
shadows 10, 16, 20

4) HUE/SATURATION
master 0, 10, 0

*optional* 5) COOLING FILTER; (since I cannot locate a cooling filter in Photoshop, we'll have to substitute it with whatever we can) fill new layer with #00b5ff. Set to OVERLAY @ 15% opacity.

And you're done! Final result:
(WITH COOLING FILTER LAYER: )


I would love to see your results. :)

Oh, I have Paint Shop Pro and it doesn't have the same options, so I won't be able to try your tutorials, even if I don't look at tutorials normally. lol I just thought to tell you now, in case you would be wondering :)

Alright, no problem. :) I used to have PSP but then I didn't know how to use it because it was so different from Photoshop so I gave up, LOL.

LOL Same thing for me, I tried Photoshop but it felt so different and confusing, that I decided to keep the one I was using for years.
