** Disclaimer for images, textures, brushes, etc. – I’ve collected a lot of these over the past year or so, and have no idea what belongs to whom, or is that who? Anyway, if you see something that you created, or know who created it, let me know and I’ll give proper credit.

Here’s my base which is pretty dark, so...

1. Duplicate 3 times and set all to Screen 100 and then merge all

2. Go to Enhance Photo, Auto Contrast, Dark/Normal/Bold

3. Go to Adjust, Sharpness, Unsharp Mask, 1/35/0

4. Duplicate and Desaturate (Shift + H, saturation -100) and set to Soft Light 100. Merge, and I got this...

RGB: Point 1: Input 185 Output 201
Point 2: Input 49, Output 41
Red: Point 1: Input 198, Output 195;
Point 2: Input 60, Output 48
Now click OK

11. Merge all, go to Enhance Photo, Auto Saturation, more colorful, strong. And I got this...
