Saby, I concur; thank you SO MUCH for this! It's very kind of you, and I'll be keen on learning this technique as well! Thanks again.

One lil problem. The results in CS4 looks great, but after saving and uploading to either here or any other we-server, the image seems to revert to about 50% of it's original appearance. What would cause that?

Make sure you convert the image to sRGB and use a color managed web browser like Safari.

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Convert to sRGB? Is that sRGB IEC61966-2.1? I've never changed or converted profiles, so excuse my newb~ness. I'm using opera. All of the images on this thread appear the same in opera and when I copy them to CS4. hmmm.

Yup, that sRGB.

It's very possible you're doing everything right. However, in that your images change upon upload -IOW, when you stop viewing it in your imaging editing app and start viewing it in a browser- it's an indication that there's a broken link in your internet color management.

Might not be that, but that's where I'd begin.

Spend some time with this page and see if it turns up any clues:

You've lost all your detail in your shadows. What was grey is now a bottomless pit of blackness. Try work on select areas instead of applying global adjustments.

Re: How to: "Christian Schmidt" Look

Sorry, I should have added that besides the blacks having no detail, your skin area rocks! You nailed that one quite nicely.
