My workflof is as follows:
- duplicate original picture...
-get the right colurs you want in curves
- on the duplicate picture i made it b&w in channel mixer. Adjustments-channel mixer. Push the monochrome button
. then play with the channel buttons there...try to get more shadows and more light without the picture looking wierd(overexposed or underexsposed)
Hi Gerry: I know this is a very old post, I just decided to use your workflow, as written above, but I got a doubt here. When you check your monochrome button the pictures turns to B W, OK... After that, do you change your blending mode or what? How do you get color into the picture again? The only thing I could do in order to put color back was change the blend mode to soft light, but the results are not that good. I'll appreciate your feedback... Thanx
