Updated description written in April 2013:
This is a funky tutorial I made back in the day before I learned how to paint with straight-up color. These days I'd recommend using these filters for COLOR CORRECTION ONLY, not painting an entire image with them like I do here in the tutorial. Still, the tutorial serves its purpose to introduce you to how powerfully helpful adjustment layers are.

Enjoy all the same!

My jaw hit the keyboard with this... this is incredibly helpful and informative. I'm new at photoshop, so a lot of tutorials kinda go over my head, but this one was right at my level (especially with that helpful 'basic' part at the beginning)

I used to! Years ago. Today, I do straight-up, regular painting with color and pure color theory. The last time I used this coloring technique was like.... 2010 XD
