Curvy Cross Processing in Photoshop CS3 | Layers Magazine This tutorial describes one of my favorite techniques for ‘spicing’ up a photograph. This method is adapted from the color darkroom of old. In those days, innovative photographers often processed film in a chemical solution intended for another type of film. For instance, they might process color slide film in C-41 chemicals. The result yielded a most unusual shift in color, which created a very retro look. To recreate this technique using the computer is both easy and fun. Begin with a processed image that has high contrast. Repeat this process by adding yet another curves adjustment layer, this layer will be used to create the cross processed look. The basic rule of thumb is to raise the red and green in the highlights, and to drop the red and green in the shadows. Drop the blue in the highlights and raise the blue in the shadows. Note as you work through the previous steps that much of the adjusting is based on your own personal preference.
