This cool tone colour change?

I saw this on a tutorial where he tells us about how to retouch the skin etc, but he never mentioned how he got the colour like this? did he simply put more blue or cyan in the image? and brighten it maybe? help if you can, thanks!

Use the color balance tool perhaps.

Or hue sat. Or dupe the layer, convert to b&w, lower opacity to taste, layer mask and use a low opacity soft brush to paint back the hair a tad. Then add a colour fill layer above and repeat.

Re: This cool tone colour change?

actually you should use the curves and contrast adjustment layers... I saved the curves preset for you and attached it in a zip file.

Additionally, you should use dodging and burning of the shadows and highlights to achieve the rest of this photo if the tutorial didn't already tell you to.

Granted, my settings aren't perfect and the color isnt absolutely exact, I hope it helps you in some way to learn about color.

Hazza, if you add a plain old Curve Adj layer and take the mid point of the blue channel and pull it up about 15 points, and pull the midpoint of the Red channel down about 15 points you will get pretty close. Of course there has been a lot of other things done to the original - stray hairs removed, dodge and burn, etc.
Regards, Murray

Re: This cool tone colour change?

There are many ways to do that. I tried two of them.
Few curves from sample points, vibrance & levels.
And the second: levels, HSL & vibrance.
The main thing is to match histograms.
