From now until Sunday or Monday I'll be busy with our school's fete.  I'll still be online, but not as frequently as usual.  Thanks for your patience.

How to achieve the popular Mastin lab look

This one really interests me.  When you do creative edits like this, does skin just go out the window?  I currently look at CMYK values as I do your Skin action to help me judge.  When you use a "preset" or effect like this, do you just ignore those values?  Also, if you were going to adjust this to an ACR preset, would you just mess in the Hue/Sat tab?

Oh yes.

Midtone contrast first, then yes, Hue/Sat.

I am looking to find some presets for my personal "non masterpiece" work (as you call it) to help speed things up.  However, I can't get past the contrast to the skin in most of them.

Mary - I like what it does to the background colours - particularly the greens and maroon type colours. I don't like what it does to skin, so if I were to use this I would only do it to the background and the strong colours, not the skin.

I am wondering if this could work on the pic I am currently working on.  Is the PSD still around?

This one is very interesting... I still don't get how to reverse engineer effects...
@Damien Symonds how do you know the process to do to get same results ?
