Two-Color Technicolor in Photoshop

Simulate the effect of old two-color Technicolor film. In this Photoshop tutorial, you will learn how to simulate the

colors of two-color Technicolor film and apply color bleeding to photos. To open an image, choose File > Open. Browse for the image file then click OK. We will be using the Channel Mixer tool to simulate the red and green color space used in the two-color Technicolor system. With the Channel Mixer, we can simulate the color effect of two-color Technicolor by merging the blue and green channels to create a teal channel (From RGB to RG).In the layers palette, click on the New Adjustment Layer button and choose Channel Mixer. In the Channel Mixer window, select Blue from the Output Channel drop down menu then set the value of Blue to 0% and Green to 100%.

We’re done creating the two-color technicolor effect. To add more realism to the effect, we’ll add a color bleed effect so that the colors appear fuzzy. To accomplish this, we’ll use the Gaussian Blur filter and blend it so that it only affects the color and on the luminosity. First, convert the layer to a Smart Object. A Smart Object allows you to apply Smart Filters – non-destructive filters. Smart Filters can be modified or removed any time. Select the Background layer and duplicate the layer (Ctrl+J or Layer > Duplicate). Change the blend mode of the new layer to Color. This blend mode makes the layer only affect the color. Choose Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Adjust the Radius setting just until the objects are blurry but still recognizable. If you are using Photoshop CS2 or older, you will be able to see the color bleed effect so you can adjust the setting to get the results that you like. Photoshop CS3 Select the Background layer and duplicate the layer (Ctrl+J or Layer > Duplicate). Change the blend mode of the new layer to Color. This blend mode makes the layer only affect the color. Set the blend mode to Color then click OK. If you want to adjust the bleed, double click on the Gaussian Blur Smart Filter and adjust the settings. You will be able to see a live preview of the effect. Two-Color Technicolor
