    Hi guys,

    Been asked to do a favour for a friend of mine who's preparing work for their art degree show. He's got a few photos of sculptures (eg below), and basically just wants to make the sculptures stand out more and look really colourful.

    Whats the best way of going about this in photoshop cs2? And there's quite a few of them (all the same colour), how easy is it to set up a batch process thingy?

    Cheers for the help.

    Try this. It's suppsoed to simulate Velvia. you can get actions sets that do it better but this might be ok for your needs.

    1. Layer<>New Adjustment Layer<>Channel Mixer<>Click OK
    2. Make these changes to each of the red, green, and blue sliders for each
    output channel......

    Output Channel: Red
    ..... Change Red Slider to: 141%
    ..... Change Green Slider to: -22%
    ..... Change Blue Slider to -22%

    Output Channel: Green
    ..... Change Red Slider to: -22%
    ..... Change Green Slider to: 144%
    ..... Change Blue Slider to -22%

    Output Channel: Green
    ..... Change Red Slider to: -22%
    ..... Change Green Slider to: -22%
    ..... Change Blue Slider to 144%

    3. click OK.

    Adjust the opacity of the adjustment layer to suit. Might work...

    Also, something else I learnt from Morgan on this very forum adds a nice pop to some images ... Filter>smart sharpen. Set amount to 20% and pixels to around 20 to 30 ish.

    Hope that helps.
