    Awesome, just what I was looking for. Works a treat. I’ve made an action for this now so I can apply it with just the click of a button :)

    Is there a tutorial on remove the rude and annoying comments?
    That “Draw an Owl” photo was hilarious

    Where can I find the effects, the .3dl files?

    1. Photoshop Tutorials Editor says:

      It should be included in the dropdown menu without loading the .3dl files. You need Photoshop CS6 to use the color lookup adjustment.

    Where do I go to enable the colour lookup? I don’t seem to have it.

    1. Skylar says:

      It’s only in CS6

      And thanks for the tut!

    1) Your way does not do anything
    2) To get anything decent you have to mess with each color setting and that is way more work than adding a few lookup layers
    3) It’s not the same so dont be such a smartass

    1. Make a white layer set to soft light.
    2. Use hue\sat to color it

    Same effect without your stupid steps
