Finding the Cool and Warm ColorsThe first step towards this Photoshop effect is to identify the cool and warm colors.
Step 1Open a photo you would like to edit. Or, you may use the photo used in this tutorial (from iStockPhoto).
Step 2The Lab color mode contains a chroma A channel that identifies the cool and warm colors. To access this channel, change the color mode to Lab color (Image> Mode> Lab Color)
Step 3Now that we're editing in Lab color, we can grab the channel. But before we do this, we need to create a new layer (Layer> New> Layer or Shift+Ctrl+N) .
Step 4After creating a new layer, we'll add the chroma A channel to the layer. With the new layer selected, use the Apply Image tool (Image> Apply Image) to set the following properties:
- Layer: Merged
- Channel: a
- Invert: Unchecked
- Blending: Normal
- Opacity: 100%
