I used a little PWL to add to the highlights. Also used a little healing on the skin here and there, and added some conrast from the blue chanenel.

I copied the blue channel to a new layer and set it to Lumnocity.

You have to select the the channel layer with select all (Select>Select All), ctrl C, layer palette, Ctrl V.

At least, always work form me

... and all channels must be ON when trying to paste into a layer, if I remember correctly.

nope...that didn't work...selecting all only selects the layers palette and not the channels...when rightclicking the blue channel i can push the duplicate menu, but that only gives me a new menu...with that menu you can only place an alpha-layerin the channel-palette....

Have an active layer visible. Make sure a single layer is selected and visible.
View the Blue channel ONLY - un-click the eye icons on the other channels or Command 3
Select all (command A). This doesnt mean select all the layers in the layers panel, it means Command A
Copy
Back to layers palette - view composite, command tilde or click on the RGB composite view in channels
Paste

I still can't do it...copy blue channel, paste into layers...nothing happens...and yes, the blue channel is selected when pushing ctrl + v and layerpalette is selected when pasting...

is this right?
