How can I do this LOOK

Hello Pro community,

I´m wondering about the colors in this Pictures (attach files). I think the color correction was done in CMYK ! But CMYK is not my world only RGB ;-) ! So can some CMYK pro tell me how can I paste this look on each other Picture ?

Maybe there is a Photoshop Plugin in the world who do this look.

Thanks
Daniel

Re: How can I do this LOOK

I wouldnt really define it as "cmyk correct" as cmyk correcting is used to make accurate skin color editing as well as ridding of any incorrect color casts, which these pictures are far from.

The grungy textures are just a seperate layer on overlay or hardlight mode of an image of your fave texture (ie: paper, concrete, etc.) on top of the original layer, adjust opacity and mask to your liking.

Maybe one technique used here to gain that "hazy" vintage look is to do a curves adj layer, and mess with each RGB channel curve to your liking and exagerrate that "flat/hazy" contrast by making the curve line "more horizontal" and/or maybe doing opposite s-curves and also adjusting each channel to exaggerate certain colors, like the green casts in these pics. Hope that made sense.

Re: How can I do this LOOK

There is no magical process that fits all images.
For some images, a particular workflow might work, while for others it fails miserably.

The best way is indeed, trial and error.

Sorry to rain on your parade. :-)

Daniel,

just because you don't agree with my statement, there is no need to use that kind of language.

However, I do understand what you are looking for.

What you are looking for is what all of us wished there was: one single miraculous process that fixes/adjusts/enhances whatever is that we are working on.

Since all images have different needs to reach the ideal that you are looking for, the required steps will be different.

That is the reason why there is no such thing as a "slik answer".

i agree with above that each image takes diff settings...my tip should be a good starting point and get you there with a few curve adjustments (heck, even levels will work).

Also, the only way to truly learn is trial and error. If not, your just gonna be sliding and clicking that same settings every time, without learning what each adjustment truly does.

Olbaldy, Great resource! It made me laugh, how easy it was.

This is definitely going to be one of those things that goes into my normal workflow.

THANKS!
