I have problems at step 4,
I'm using Adope Photoshop 7 and I just can't set both inputs at 0, that's impossible!
Can you tell me some solution? Nice tut by the way!

Sorry I never use that program before but I tried it using the following values

75 133 for green

22 162 for blue and I increase the opacity of the color burn to 74%.

And I changed the value of the selective coloring for the last step,

(Red)
Cyan : -100
Magentas : +10
Black : +100

(Neutrals)
Cyan : +16

And the end result is this, which I think looks pretty similar,

Sorry I can't be of more help

I had that (in PSCS2)... Instead of making a point I just pulled up the black square on the left up... Hope that made sense :/

Relative or absolute
Good tutorial! But for the selective color have we to use the realtive or absolute option?
