Re: create h&m look?

I can't see much from those thumbnails. Too small. But my initial guess is that the scenes are pretty colorless to begin with. I'm seeing black and white clothes and neutral backgrounds. On top of that, the image appears to be desaturated with a sepia overlay added.

Try this as a down-and-dirty and see if it gets you in the ball park:

duplicate background layer.
add HSL adjustment layer and clip it to dup layer.
use these setting in HSL: H=20, S=20, L=0.
adjust opacity of duped layer (with the HSL layer clipped to it) if you'd like to let some original color thru. Try 65%.

Let me know if this gets you in the ball park. If not try to link to a larger image.

thx for the answer..i have a few questions:

what is a HSL layer? and what does dup layer mean?

"dup layer" means "duplicate layer" for sure

If my method made your image more saturated then you did not do it correctly. How could it, I'm telling you to desaturate it by 80%?
