then basically it's just that...
u need a raw without a LOT of different tones in it.
u need a raw which u can easily desaturate a lil bit the tones in
But you did use AIM right? or not?

I have a lot to learn yet about using gradient maps but I have installed your set and they are wonderful. There are a few I think will help me a lot retouching metal. Thanks for sharing.

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

@djslyda - i dont remember everything, but most of the techniques are in the thread.
Your image was pretty good to start out with as far as exposure.

did the AIM conversion + curves
shadows and highlights
then, on an adjustment layer - color balance
then, gradient map it.. you can use the one's included in this thread or experiement... cant remember which one i did
Then i did #157..
Changed to lab colorspace (adjust levels)
Create a stamp of the image, use a white softlight brush for highlights, black for shadows (low opacity)
sharpen it and thats it..

But i didnt expect much out of it so i didnt record anything..
Image exposure, maps, color balance and a softlight brush low opacity.

I wish it was a higher res image though
