What tone does this called? and how?

Im trying to figure out how to achieve this kind of tone, where majority of the shadow is in magenta, tried using solid color with exclusion, but would not affect the shadow part. Can anybody help me
??

try using the lighten blending mode instead. this should lighten the shadows with the solid fill colour that you want.

cross processed. Make a curve adjustment layer, and move you endpoints in the opposite direction that you normally would to add contrast. Do this to the R, G, and B channels. That's the simplest way. Selective color adjustment layer is also very good for this but takes some more time to learn what colors to blend.

Re: What tone does this called? and how?

Three ways to do it here. The first two are from the old days, but they still work. All three allow you to target shadows and highlights separately.

Version 1:
Make a selection from your master RGB channel and save as an alpha channel.

Make a fill layer with the color you want to use for your shadows. Solid magenta is what they would have used in the samples you provided but any color will work. Blues and greens are popular these days.

Make a selection from the previously saved alpha channel and inverse it. Use it to create a layer mask for your solid color. Dial down the opacity to around 20%. Adjust contrast on the mask to tighten the effect on the darker areas.

Same steps for highlights, but don't invert the mask.

Version 2:
Don't bother with a mask. Double click the solid fill layer in the Layer Palette and in the Blend If sliders, pull the highlight sliders left in the Underlying Layer controls to about 130. Then hold the Option key down to split the sliders and pull the left one to around 50. Move either slider left or right to fine tune for the image. Each will take different settings. For highlights, pull the shadow sliders right and split the same way.

Again, dial down the opacity to taste.

Version 3:
The simplest, but not available to you if you're using an older version of Photoshop. Open in Camera Raw with Bridge. Play with the split-toning settings.

Hi Valerie,

There must be an infinite number of ways, but the quickest and easiest for me would be to bring up a Curves Adjustment Layer, OK it and set the blend mode to Color. Then open the curve adjustment, select the pencil tool and the green channel, and "cut a chunk" out of the bottom of the green curve. Then repeatedly tap the smooth button till it blends nicely.

Even simpler perhaps:

1. Open the Levels window and select the Blue channel.
2. At the bottom, increase the left (black) Output Level beyond 20 or until you're happy.

This will add blue to the shadows as you desire.

thx all, I'll try them all!

Not long after i posted, I use the luminosity mask by cmd + click on the RGB channel and invert the selection so that the shadow is selected, and then use solid magenta color with lighten blend modes and play with the opacity, but it lacks the contrast as you guys pointed out, so gotta play with em some more.
