Gnroach, Are you trying to create a color in Photoshop that you see on a printed photo?
Can you explain a little?
Regards, Murray

Maybe posting a sample would help understand your question.

D&B mainly and a touch of solid color @ very low opacity to give it the desired tint. may be curves, may be not, it is really up to you how would you like the outcome to look like.

Re: Awesome color...how to do this??

To "import" color into PS -if this is a valid statement-
1- open image that you want to "import" color into - this is image (1)
2- open image that has the color you like/want/desire. - this is image (2)
3- select image (1), go to menu\image\match color
4- on the "source" tap/selection, select image (2), if it is multi layer, select the layer of interest.

Play with the sliders, first one to adjust will be "fade", it affects how much of an effect you want, adjust sliders to taste. You might also want to duplicate the layer (results of the color match) and play with various blending options to arrive at the final result.

I hope this helps

To each his own, I guess. Looks like an army green image that was high passed (slightly) and desaturated.

Pull some dark gradients in from the corners for "drama".

Don't forge that not every photo/picture is a candidate for this technique, the overall composition & tone of the source image is the deciding factor. In addition, the example you furnished has a lot of D&B and local contrast to it, so, a lot of work is required to achieve this look. This example, more or less, falls under the Dragan effec http://www.google.com/images?hl=&q=p...=1306&bih=1001

This subject is covered here and in details over at dpreview.com, the retouch forum, search for posts by PamR, they are like 2 year old posts.

If you wish, you may post an image that you have in mind, the good folks here will let you know if it is the right mix or not and will show you how to do it.
