Color Manipulation on the Photo

Basically, in this tutorial I’m going to be showing you how to create a photo effect like the one in the below image, it’s pretty much all accomplished by using color curves and color levels, as are most photo effects, right?

Start by finding some appropriate picture to use it in this tutorial. I used a cool hooligan photo. If you want you can download from it here and get to work. Open up the photo and increase contrast with Image > Adjustments > Levels:

Now we have a contrast like this:

Ok, move to the next step. Begin to make color correction on photography. Press on the layers thumbnail ‘Create new fill or new adjustment layer’ button and chose Curves.

After that set up following settings for each color channel:

After that slightly reduce the contrast. Move to the original layer with photo and apply Image > Adjustments > Levels with such settings as on the picture below.

Next, create a new layer above the curves layer and fill it with green color (#007016). Change layer mode to Overlay.

And the last one thing that we need to do is to bring a little bit of noise to the photo. Create a new one layer and fill it with black color after that apply Filter > Noise > Add Noise:

Now, change layer mode to Color Dodge and you will see the final result.
