How to archieve this fashion swimsuit look?

Hi all,

I saw this retouched photo and would like to archieve and experiment this effect. How this effect (green) is actually call it?

Does anyone know how to get a good result like this in Photoshop?

Try a photo filter layer with green.

Hi qpixo, I'm new to the forum, so hello everybody.

I would say that are numerous ways you can achieve this look. The wisest thing to do would be to work the image contrast before you start to do the color.
This image has this general feel, but you can notice that the highlights are filled with a yellow/greenish tone, so you can play a little withe the Color Balance > Midtones and Highlights, and Selective Color > Neutrals, before you apply this green layer with some kind of blending like Color/Hue, and low oppacity.

I hope it helps.

This could have been done all in lightroom. Using split toneing you can apply the green or whatever color to the hilights and shadows. Then use the blacks slider and contrast for the deep contrast look. Lastly use the brush to bring out the hilights.

Example below.

Hope it helps,

Nothing to do with the thread but it doesn't really make me want to buy this swimsuit. This color is awful!

Make a new adjustment layer "Solid Color" with that kind of green. In your example the color was taken with the pipette from the background to intensify the plants in the background. Choose the layer style "Soft light".

Now take a copy of the picture into a new layer. Make it black and white and invert it. Make the surrounding of the model white. Adjust the Brightness of the layer. Then copy the black/white layer and paste it into the layer mask of the solid color layer (you can discard the b/w layer after that). This makes the background intensively green, while the green effect on the model depends on the brightness of the skin. The green is stronger, where the skin is darker.

You can adjust the effekt with dodge and burn on the layer mask.

I'm glad you said something. I find this image...unappealing - the ugly green caste on her skin is really icky. Of all the things you can do to make a skinny woman look stunning in a bikini - I don't understand WHY you'd want to do this. Now give her some sparkly jewel-colored reptilian scales and it could be a compelling image IMHO.
