Question tint an image with pastel color,help

Hi

i'm new and i want to say hi to all

well
i have some photos and i like an effect that tint the photo with pastel color
i don't mean colorize , i want to keep the original color but i would like to "veer" to some light delicate, gentle pastel tone

what i did is in photoshp cs3
desaturate at 50% to obtain more soft color
and add a filter with a pastel coated color
but i did not get the results


thanks

i'm asking because i'm thinking to change isp , but i like this forum a lot

are you talking about
Quote:
1) general tone, CB, cropping in lightroom
2) general clean-up, light smoothing in CS3
3) add colour layer, 00122c blend=exclusion
4) add colour layer, f4f4d3 blend=pin mode, opacity=15%
5) add texture, blend=overlay
6) back into lightroom, general sharpening\
nice skill but i would like to do with my wanted pastel color

Just change the colors shown to your colors and see how they blend. I think it would create a nice feel on that nude you linked.

Re: tint an image with pastel color,help

I hope you don't mind but I tried to recreate the effect you may be looking for. After reading posts in the forums about color hazing, its all about the blend modes and understanding which colors will do what.

my layers:
1. Curves set to color to warm up the skin tone
2. Curves blend mode normal set the default setting to cross process and lower the opacity.
3. layer filled with blue set to Exclusion with a mask so it only shows in the shadow areas lower the opacity
4. layer filled with yellow blend mode to softlight lower the opacity

I hope that maybe helped!
I also too a little creative liberty, sorry, I think skin should be warm but it apply the color you are looking for just fill the layers in with the colors you want as ezprod mentioned.
