quick and dirty cross process

All you need is curves, bra da da da dah.

Put some CYAN in the shadows:

Put some Blue in the shadows and yellow in the highlights:

You can leave the green alone (or put a little magenta in the shadows – ie remove some green like this…)

Take away some contrast:


and after:

hang on, lets make those highlights blow out a bit…

duplicate the layer and set the layer mode to screen:

Blur it a bit (or a lot)

The clever bit: Double click on the layer to bring up the layer style
See where it says “this layer”: Use the layer blend slider things and separate the shadow end (press alt whilst cliking on them). This create a soft falloff, and means that the blurring is only applied to the highlights.

Curves is all you need.
