You have to paste it onto a new layer, not the layer palate. Once you copy the blue channel go back to your layer palate, create a new layer and paste the blue channel to the new layer. Hope that helps!

is this right?
Make sure you havent the blue channel selected when pasting into the layers ( all channels should be active ).

And there is a typo , should probably read "yes, the blue channel is selected when pushing ctrl + c".

this is an interesting technique. What was it about the original photo made you think to copy the Blue channel and set blending mode? And what made you pick the Blue over the other two?

Its a common trick to add some drama as the skin tones are usually darker in the blue channel. Some use it as the base of a b/w conversion too.

Hi
I also had trouble coping the blue channel I kept getting no pixiles. So what I did was duplicate that channel as a new document, then I could copy it and went back to the orginal file and on a new layer I was able to past it in and change it to luminosity. That made it very dynamic.

Hi, no prob found in copying the blue channel the way described above. There is another way though...dup bg layer, add new blank layer, go to Image, apply image, select layer = bg copy, channel = blue, finally set blend mode in drop down menue in the layers palette to luminosity..hope that helps

Here's my attempt.
I tried for a natural look.
I love Pellepiano's version. I've been a fan of his work for a while.

I'm adding one inspired by Pellepiano's edit.
Nowhere close but fun to try.

Lovely portrait. This is my take. Not improving, just some personal taste color corrections.
