You might have seen this type of image before and wandering how to do that. Today, let me show you how, they are very easy and simple to do. This is how

First, open an image. Add a Channel Mixer adjustment layer

We will be using the Channel Mixer tool to simulate the red and green color space used in the two-color Technicolor system. And to remove blue from the blue channel.

Picture1

Set the value of Blue to 0% and Green to 100% in Blue Output Channel. Wallah!! 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 look fuzzy. To do this, we’ll apply the Gaussian Blur filter and blend it so that it only affects the color and on the luminosity.

Picture2

Select the Background layer and duplicate the layer, change the blend mode of the new layer to Color. This blend mode makes the layer only affect the color.

In Photoshop, Choose Filter , select  Blur, follow by Gaussian Blur. Adjust the Radius setting to your liking.

And here you have it – the final results
