Regarding this picture
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/197/63423.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/197/63423.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

What are the steps to give this result? I've been messing with photoshop, but can't seem to get the perfect one.

That's how I did these:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10084/thumb/61991.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10084/thumb/61991.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/133/thumb/36215.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/133/thumb/36215.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/136/thumb/36993.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/136/thumb/36993.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

but with blue/cyan instead of red.

' . substr('//www.pbase.com/image/27013870/small.jpg', strrpos('//www.pbase.com/image/27013870/small.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Almost straight out of the camera ....

Makeup. If you clown out the face it would be no problem.

I had to buy a neon colored bandaid, otherwise the skin colored one would not have been legal.

Have her wear a different coloured lipstick - like blue. Then change the hue to red once you've desaturated the image.

i had to desaturate in several different steps. After the first desaturation I adjusted the color just enough to turn the pink in her skin a different shade....then desaturated all but red again. Otherwise...the red in his shirt would not have been there. The image was DQ'd because i did not send in the original file...not for breaking photoshop rules. :)
