We're going to go from this boring image: to this: .
Remember: change the settings depending on your image!

- Start off with your image. Mine is of Avril Lavigne from Avril-Images.net. I wanted to play around with this image.
- Duplicate your base once and set it to Screen 30%. This image is a little too dark, so I decided to brighten it up a bit.
- Duplicate your base again (bring it to the top) and set it to Soft Light 100%. It was too bright after the screen layer, but now it's perfect.

- Make a Hue/Saturation layer with these settings.
Edit: MASTER
Hue: 0
Saturation: +30
Lightness: 0
Edit: YELLOWS
Hue: 0
Saturation: +30
Lightness: 0
This makes the image pop a bit more, which is good because it was pretty dull color-wise. It also raises the yellows so we can play around with Avril's gorgeous blond hair.

- Make a color fill layer with #000074. Set it to Exclusion 40%. I wanted to make it the blacks a little more blue and make it more yellow and add a bit of that "vintage" look everyone uses.

- Make a Selective Color layer with these settings.
Reds.
Cyan: -20
Magenta: +30
Yellow: +20
Black: 0
Yellows.
Cyan: 0
Magenta: 0
Yellow: -50
Black: 0
Magentas.
Cyan: 0
Magenta: +100
Yellow: 0
Black: 0
Whites.
Cyan: 0
Magenta: 0
Yellow: -20
Black: 0
Blacks.
Cyan: 0
Magenta: 0
Yellow: 0
Black: +30

- Make a color fill with #693400. Set it to Exclusion 26%. This is to darken up the image a little bit more
- Make another color fill layer with #01001d. Set it to Exclusion 36%. This was to add more of the "vintage" effect.

- Paste this texture in your image:

Set it to Soft Light 50% to make your image more green.

- Make a Hue/Saturation layer with these settings.
Edit: MASTER

I wanted to make the image "pop" more.

And you're done!
