Re: This style

Does this method interfere when changing back and forth between modes? There has to be a way to translate those CMYK values and put them in RGB so you can then adjust in RGB no? To me changing modes is not always good.

Re: This style

um...again, i just find it easier using CMYK curve for CMYK values (whatever works for you i guess). u can switch back to RGB mode after (however, u can't keep CMYK curve). im not sure if switching mode would do any harm to image (do it @your own risk).

here it is just by using curve (s)

u'll need 2-3 separate curves (with mask) to get similar result, for example one for her skin, her bikini, sky, etc.

ooooooo im sorry i have been away from my comp. but i seeee.. it looks just the same...

Re: This style

I did it using HUE only. Quite smilar look.

-Add an adjustment layer of HUE.
-Rolling the pull down menu chose:


SAT: +34
LUM: +15


SAT: +48

Then mask out the background or color correct it by using the other colors.
