Hi! I was playing around a little with some "funny" images. Here is the original image, straight from the camera (apart from cropped on the top and resized) Here the steps 1.resized 2.Applying Nik color Efex 3.0 Tonal contrast on the whole image 3.quick lasso selection around the face/hands etc. (leaving out hair clothes etc) 4.applying (again) filter tonal contrast to the selection, deselect. 5.desaturate (whole image) 6.fade desaturation by 45% 7.Applying Alien skin Snap Art filter (preset, assorted bright and detailed) 8.convert and save for web Here is the result. I quite like the effect on goofy images like this. Two other examples.
