Nice huh? Well in just a couple of step's, your picture will come from lifeless to lively in seconds. =)

Step One: Grab a picture, this effect works on all so any lighting picture will work. I'll be using this picture of Siwon from Super Junior. XD

Step Two: Duplicate your photo(Ctrl+J). Set the blending mode to Screen. I duplicated me Screen layer again cause my picture was still to dark. This all depends on your picture, if it already light & the Screen layer makes it look like a like just burst out of your pictures face, then I suggest you don't make a screen layer at all. Just make the picture a bit bright.

Step Three: Make a new layer(Shift+Ctrl+N). Take your fill tool & fill it with 060b50. Set the blending mode to Exclusion.

Step Four: >Layer, New Adjustment Layer, Selective Coloring. Apply these settings:

Cyan: -100
Magenta: -8
Yellow: +23
Black: +20
Cyan: -100
Magenta: +14
Yellow: -100
Black: 0
Cyan: 0
Magenta: 0
Yellow: +11
Black: +8
Cyan: -9
Magenta: 0
Yellow: +100
Black: 0

& there you have it, a nice warm effect! XP
