Photoshop CS2. Translatable. Colour balance. Only 6 steps!
|1. Take your picture; resize it and position it however you want within a 100x100 frame. I took this picture of Imogen Heap and made this base:|
2. Sharpen your picture. If it looks a bit too over the top, go to Edit -> Fade Sharpen.
3. Duplicate the base and set it to Screen, 100%. (you can drop the opacity later if your image looks too bright)
4. Create a new raster layer with the fill colour #e3e2cf. Set to Multiply, 100%
5. Next, create a new Colour Balance adjustment layer (Layer->New Adj. Layer->Colour Balance). Settings are:
Midtones: -42, -42, -27
Shadows: -49, +1, +31
Highlights: +8, +1, +14.
Make sure "Preserve Luminosity" is clicked at all times.
6. Create yet another new raster layer and fill colour #bdeef2 to Colour Burn 100%.
And you're done!
If your image is too greeen I'd suggest lowering the opacity of the Colour Burn layer, or reducing the amont of Cyan on the midtones Colour Balance.
