Ray, using your after example, I duplicated the layer, desaturated the layer and then placed in overlay mode. I erased the hair and background from the overlay and then adjusted the hue, saturation and brightness of the lower layer. Maybe should have masked a little before mucking around with saturation on the primary levels.

Probably a little too far
But the first one is perfect. You should post your method in the tutorials section This topic is bound to come up again and IMO your first image demonstrates the effect perfectly

megl, your work looks a LOT like the samples posted! Could you do your method on an image with darker skin? I'm uploading samples from gal.mvc.ru that are supposed to be for free use.

Yeah - I might find some time to write a tut. Many could benefit I guess - this question pops up over and over again.

CJ - do you have that pic of the basketball player in a higher resolution?

I dodged the skin highlights. I created a luminosity mask and changed the hue towards green to make the highlights more silver.

Edit: In for a penny, in for a pound. Here is the other one with a similar technique.

Megl, the original is higher -- I had to lower it to post it in the thread --- you can download it here: http://gal.mvc.ru/gallery/pictures/peoples/10.html

He's on the bottom left-hand side of the page at this link (pg. 10)

I tried the Draganizer action out on this photo just to see how it would look. I think it worked pretty well. I'm sure I need to work on where I apply the adjustments, etc.
