You can select the rgb channel instead of making a new layer.
For example, to make a layer of the green channel while staying in the layers tab:
ctrl+2 (+1 is red, +3 is blue and +~ is rgb), ctr+a, ctrl+c, ctrl+~, ctrl+v

Thank you both! I tried that, but in the wrong order. It makes much more sense now!

There is a program that does this kind of lighting effect very well. It has 3 or 4 lighting brushes that can add that shine look you describe, brushes to create soft glowing highlights, very elegant glows and light rays, and many other kinds of lighting effects.

Their web gallery page shows each effect in 5 or 6 different situations and its interactive - they have a demo gallery for the effect you describe.

The program is "Mystical Lighting" by autofx and can be found here.

Do you mean like this??? Well, this was done quickly but is this along the lines you are talking about? The last picture kept the same hair color without the silvering

This is the thread where we discussed this desaturated technique (look into about pg 5 and onwards of the thread)

Ps

I took those examples from that thread... some talented people on this forum!

I used the desaturate and then paint back in for this image on my portfolio website:

It could have been taken further though.

A little more on the serious note... I'm still trying to achieve that look between using a color filter, desaturation, dodge tool, etc. but I don't know if I'm getting anywhere here.
