The saving private ryan look

I;m sure you guys have caught saving private ryan at one point of time or other.

my question is this, is the muted, desaturated colour easily available for emulation via pprocessing?

i know this isn't exactly a good example. but i was hoping if someone could point me along the right direction to achieve that sort of moody look

The (non-digital) technique is known as "bleach bypass". There are any number of ways to replicate the look in Photoshop. Here is a freeware filter, and I'm sure there will be many other options mentioned.

Interesting question, Triste. I hadn't thought about doing that effect. Thanks for the link, Doug! And yes, it's a great forum.
