Desaturate a bit in RGB mode and then increase the contrast just a little bit on the L channel in Lab mode.

No problems.

Frankly I did not expect you'd get exactly the same look but just gave what I thought to be the quickest aproximation of that kind of stuff.

You could use levels or curves on the Lab L channel instead of contrast for example of course.

Or perhaps trying to do it all in CMYK would be another way. You'd desaturate, which would affect only the CMY channels, and then you could play with the luminosity of the K channel with any of the above mentioned tools. This would yeld a different result than the above but still in the same vein.

You can also copy channels into each other, for example you could paste a Lab L channel into the CMYK K channel and fade to taste or vice versa.

Not to speak about copying the Lab L channel or the CMYK K channel and pasting it as a new layer in multiply mode at a certain opacity and so on...

Or any mixture of thereof and more you can do with the gradient map or the channel mixer in grayscale mode applied in luminosity mode at a certain opacity for example.

Have fun,

Cheers

Re: How to achieve this color toon?

Always when i see some nice effect or color tone online then i wish to see the original, almost good shots originally to start with can help a lot to have many or different results, if your shots are different than those shots originally then it is difficult to achieve same color tones for both [i said difficult not impossible].

In fact i am working hard now to achieve those kind of desaturated color tones or mono/cold look, maybe i didn't get something perfect, but i've got many results that are good as well.

Secretagents, Thanks a lot you've open to me a venue leads to wide area of the retouching information’s.

I will try it again and again
Many thanks for the useful time you spent in this page.



Dear Tariq,

I totally agree with you , a good retouching needs a powerful row material / photo.

We wish to see your result , I’m sure it will add a lot.

Thanks,

Re: How to achieve this color toon?

Isn't it just a slight desat, and then messing with the neutral in selective color and then adding a vignette?

Re: How to achieve this color toon?

I'm really reluctant to post this because your original is so different from your target, I'm really not sure what you're hoping for.

I wont mention the steps I took because, A) it's probably not the look you're after and, B) it's probably not the most efficient route. But just ask if you'd like to know.
