How to Fake Cross-Processing in Photoshop (And Why You’d Want To)

Oh cross-processed film, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…

    The super-saturated colors
    The ultra-high contrast
    The retro, artsy style
    The way everybody asks, “How did you DO that?”

But alas! Alack! Our digital camera gives us no film to cross-process! How shall we reclaim our Paradise Lost?

With Photoshop, gentle reader: glorious Photoshop. With a curves layer and a “hey nonny nonny”, we are reunited with our favorite old dark-room technique.

Huzzah!
