I believe both are cross processing. Nikon's Color Efex Pro 3.0 have this feature. Since it is a chemical process, what digital plugin do is just trying to mimic the results. It's not a simply playing with colour channels, you have to know what the type of chemical does to the image when you deliberately use it wrongly. Hence I say you just go with a plugin to perform such tasks for you :)

alternatively, read up on curves , u can also achieve something similar using it.

For the below picture, i did a S curve on RGB and played one of the R, G, B to turn into this color

This is done via Canon DPP software. Photo of cos had to shoot in raw format first. And once u tune to a favorite setting, u can save it as a recipe and reuse it next time on other photos.

You need several adjustment tools to do the trick. If I'm not wrong, the effect you are looking for should be desaturation with pink hue.

Desaturation and increase gamma should do the trick.
You should end up with a photo halfway between the original colour photo and the black and white version of the photo.
e.g.

you can try using curves to see if you can get similar results
maybe the red and the blue channels:)

Not IR, model was mask out during processing.

This how i will work with the background. Of course, there are other methods as well.

I guess the main effect is the cross processing. (i might be wrong). Use the blue curve.

Below is workflow which i did for the pic below.. It might not be the fastest or efficient way but it created the effect i want. Look at the blue curve.

if you want easier steps.. use Lightroom, then download the Presets, there's a lot of Free presets out there that can do cross processing :)

Actually in Lightroom you do not even need the presets to do cross processing in a few seconds.

Just play with the "Split Tone" section in the develop screen.

U can download a free cross process plugin called 'urban acid' and desaturate it.
