I watched this video:

and loved the colors too much. I want to know how can I achieve colors like that in photo or video? Does 600D have that built it or is it a part of Photoshop / Lightroom?

If you are linking to a video, this is probably off topic. – dpollitt Oct 18 '13 at 13:30
The question does ask whether the effect is available for stills too. – mattdm Oct 18 '13 at 13:55
One comment from uploader is Yes. I adjusted curves with this footage in Premiere. – redreggae Oct 18 '13 at 16:46
Another comments: I used the curve effect to play with color here., Then I added sharpening and boosted the colours in post., Edited in Premiere and color graded in After Effects, Tweaked the curves in After Effects to give it a cross processed look, Here I believe I simply edited the curves to try and achieve a kind of cross-processed look. You can learn the principles for getting the cross processed look in Photoshop here (wwwdot)photographymad(dotcom)­/pages/view/digital-cross-proc­essing-in-photosho‌​p and then use in AE – redreggae Oct 18 '13 at 16:50

It looks like those colours have been achieved using a kind of cross-processing. However if you look at the video description you'll see that the video has been processed with Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects CS5. The Canon 600D doesn't have that kind of processing built in.
