Okay open up your photo, I'll be using this beautiful pic of Megan Fox♥:

Sharpen if needed, smoothen her skin if needed. Now go to colors > color balance:


Next go to colors > components > channel mixer:




and voilá you're done! (:

Now what I did also was that I added a color layer. Since GIMP doesn't have an exclusion layer we have to create our own!

Add a new fill layer with #131561. Now do the following:

lower layer: add new layer mask from grayscale copy of layer. then mask to selection.
upper layer: add new layer mask from selection.

Then remove the layer mask from the lower layer, go to selection > none. And now lower the opacity of the coloured layer if wanted and there you go, "exclusion" layer =) it is really different from the real one, but well what can you do.

my result:

other results using the same tutorial (some including the color layer, some not):

(yes you can use the icons if you want to! :D)
