Color editing tutorial

I decided to make a tutorial because it was highly requested and because I wanted to convince
you that I don't have any secret and I am definitly not a photoshop guru and everything I do
is pretty simple and basic. I do not have any pattern to process my pictures, but I use
Alien Skin Exposure 3 a lot, so here's one of the ways you can use it.

Unfortunatly my photoshop is in russian but I think it's easy to guess what is what for frequent users.

1. Make a background copy.
2. Go to Exposure 3 - Color films- Slide - Kodak Ektachrome mid-1970s(blue).
3. Editi it like you see in a video.
4. Then go to Color Balance - edit like you see in a video.
5. Go to Layer - New solid layer - Color. Name it and choose mode: Exclusion .
6. Choose a dark blue color.
7. Change the opacity of the layer.
8. Do the same thing with a grey color - then change the opacity.
9. Go to Brightness \ Contrast and add both a little bit like u see in a video.
10.  Then go to Gradient - choose orange and dark blue - change the mode to Soft Light -
 change the opacity.
11. Go to Curves and creat a curve like u see in a video. 

That's it! Hope it was useful for you guys.  
Here is the screencast of the tutorial which will help you to follow the workflow.
