    Tulack had a link a while back that I can't find now. It's probably the easiest way I've seen of approaching this. I'm sure he'll respond too.

    If I wanted to achieve a similar look, I would start with levels and channel mixer for the overall image and large sections of it. You will probably have to do extra color correction on the skin and lips. Also note that lighting matters here. I've seen similar lighting styles used on lots of stuff, and it does make a difference.

    It would take me a while to do this by hand, and I can tell you that I would end up doing a couple global layers, then going in and fine tuning skin, clothing, etc. An easier way to get something close enough might be something like VSCO. I have no idea what it costs, but it generates decent results. They're using a combination of LUT based profiles and starting presets.

    It's often easiest to set this kind of thing up if you start from a raw file. The reason it's not common among retouchers is that the client could change their mind, and you wouldn't be able to reuse a lot of the work done up that point.

        Tulack is here. I think every photographer should learn how to read a histogram. This way we almost never would have "how to" questions. Here is the link.

            Again the questions about basic use of hue saturation, selective color and curves.

            Researching those tools will give you answers to all your questions here and more.

            We could give you specific adjustments for your image, but we don't know what your start of point is...

              Photoshop has many tools to styling a photo.I think you can achieve the same effect through camera raw filter and a gradient map. In camera raw filter tool you will get an option called split toning where you will have individual control over highlight and shadow ,same way you can control each color shade with gradient map. With selective color you will have to modify some of the solid colors. There are many actions are available online for these kind of effects.

                You can't seriously recommend actions?
