Hello. This is my first post, so hopefully I have this attaching the photo thing correct. Anyway, I saw a photo that I really like the coloring on. It's kind of a sepia, but more in the yellow than brown. I have tried several methods to make my photo this shade, and I can't figure it out. I have tried all the duotone/tritone presets in Photoshop CS, and I've tried to adjust the curves. I've also tried to sample the color from the photo I like, create a new layer using that color over my photo and blend using color mode, but that also doesn't quite work. Finally I tried using hue/saturation and colorize the photo, but also had no luck. Maybe I'm being too picky, but something about the coloring in this photo I really like and would like to figure out how it is done. I don't want to post someone else's image, but here is a link to the photo I really like. http://www.twvdivas.com/suzi.html It's the top and bottom photos, the sepia like ones. And, here is an image from a shoot I did last week that is my best attempt at matching it. Thanks for the help.

Steve

Steve,

Have you looked in the default actions window? Photoshop 7.0 came with a sepia action... I'm thinking CS might, as well.

Have you tried the sepia filter under the photo filter option for new layers?

I have photo shop 7. Where do you find this default action/sepia?

make 2 layers...

The layer on top should have the image U want in B&W.
The layer on the bottom should have the color that U want it to be.

Play with the Layer Options...I recommend, Multiply and Overlay [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] HAVE FUN!

Yes, Photoshop CS has the Sepia action in the default actions. I've tried that. I have also tried the sepia filter, under image, adjustments, photo filters, sepia. They both work nicely for the more normal brown/sepia photos, but it's just been hard trying to get that color I was looking for. I never was a darkroom person, but I think the look was called somehting, like selenium printing or platinum printing or something. I don't know. Anyway, thank you all for the help. I will keep trying to see what I can come up with.

SG:

I believe you're thinking about 'selenium toning', which allows the fibre print to pick up an almost light-purplish hue.. a very pretty effect.

There was an article in PHOTOSHOP USER a few months ago about how to achieve a selenium toned effect. and someone here on GG was playing with it, but I don't remember who it was. You might try searching the forum's archives and see if you can get a hit on "selenium toning" or, I think the original topic was "duotone".

Good luck!

Wayne

Thank you for your kind words. The model is Corey Gilbertson. This was her first photo shoot, and she is located here in Denver, Colorado. If anyone is interested in shooting her, let me know and I'll pass your info to her. Thank you again.
