    I've been using martin evenings technique from "photoshop for photographers" to try and create a Cross Processed effect. I'm not sure i like it though. Anyone else have a technique or action for this, that they would care to share?

    What is his technique? I have not found one standard look to cross processing anyway.

    here is a link to the .pdf version of the page in the book. He gives two examples. I've mostly been using the first one, saved as an action

    Well, his technique seems to work pretty well. I like the effect. There's so many ways to change the color in photoshop. Working in lab mode gives you lots of options. I find just tweaking the levels of both a + b channels will give you interesting looks. Always go to window/new view though, so you can see the full color version of what you are doing.

    I use Nik’s Photo Efex cross-processing actions, but IMO they also don’t seem to mimics the natural look of cross processing that I have seen
