from to in 5 easy steps.

1. Crop, resize your base to 100x100.

2. Duplicate your base and set it to screen (I put it at 70% opacity, but if your pic is really bright, you may not need this layer at all, and if it's very dark, you may need 2 or more).

3. New Adjustment Layer-> Selective Color:

Reds:
-100|-30|-45|0

Yellows:
0|-50|-100|-25

Neutrals:
-15|-5|10|0

Blacks:
15|100|100|-35

[Method: Relative]

4. New Adjustment Layer-> Color Balance:

Shadows:
0|0|30

Midtones:
-15|20|35

5. New Adjustment Layer-> Hue/Saturation

Master:
3|30|0

Reds:
0|5|0

WARNING: If your picture is lightly saturated, you may have to duplicate the Hue/Saturation layer. If it's highly saturated, you don't need a H/S layer.
