Sunwashed Colored Effect Tutorial is but a simple way to add a golden washed out
effect with some pumped up contrast to an image simply by adding some colored
layers while applying different layer modes and opacity levels within Photoshop.

SUNWASHED COLORED EFFECT TUTORIAL:

1: OPEN AN IMAGE YOU WISH TO USE (WORKS BEST ON PORTRAITS) THIS
    WILL BECOME THE BACKGROUND LAYER.

2: CREATE A NEW LAYER AND FILL WITH THE COLOR ( e79f74) AND SET TO
    OVERLAY MODE.

3: DUPLICATE THE BACKGROUND LAYER AND MOVE TO TOP LAYER, CONVERT
    TO BLACK AND WHITE (Ctrl+Shft+U) AND LEAVE AT NORMAL MODE THEN SET
    THE OPACITY AT 43%.

4: CREATE A ANOTHER NEW LAYER AND FILL WITH THE COLOR (00515) AND SET
    TO SCREEN MODE AND THE OPACITY AT 44%.

5: DUPLICATE THE BACKGROUND LAYER AGAIN AND MOVE TO THE TOP LAYER,
    AND SET TO SOFT LIGHT MODE AT 100%.

6: CREATE YET ANOTHER NEW LAYER AND FILL WITH THE COLOR (a3c1dd) AND
    SET TO COLORBURNED MODE AND THE OPACITY AT 42%.

7: THAT'S IT!

Hopefully this simple effect can be of some small help whether applying the effect or
help in understanding other ways to apply effects other than by the use of textures,
or actions.

What # is for step 4? You have 5 instead of 6 "digits" in the color code. I just subbed it with #005150 which is a medium teal color that came out quite nice in the finished image. I'm a Gimp user but I am able to translate many tutorials from PS to Gimp.
