In these images the reddish brown colour is highlighted, this can be done using the Select>Colour Range tool in Photoshop, and then giving the picture an overall HDR look. If you give a sample image I'll do this and show.

As you say, normally the flakes would be nearly invisible, however, the photographer has used a bright flash to illuminate the flakes, so that they are much brighter than the surrounding environment. This means that, even though they are out of focus, the flakes still appear in the image, but as big dots.

Take a look at G'Mic's filters Here are some similar filters that they have - artistic -> Rodilius - artistic -> painting - artistic -> Whirl drawing

To create this affect, two operations need to be performed. First, the blurred background -- blur the image, masking out the front of the head. Secondly, the skin needs to be smoothed -- blur the low spatial frequencies. This article explains how to do this in GIMP.

First, I can't emphasize enough that the look you are trying to achieve was not a Photoshop effect; it's the result of shooting a model in a tank (or pool or tub or what have you) of water to which something was added to make the water cloudy. Reproducing the look in post-processing is going to be a little on the tedious side, but this should get you ...

This is almost certainly manually masked/brushed. I would suggest a tablet such as Wacom as you maybe spending hours doing this; make a copy of the image blur it then bring back the wanted detail by carefully masking the blurred layer adjusting the brush transparency as needed.

There are many ways to create any effect in Photoshop so there is no way of knowing what he did exactly but if you want to create a similar effect without the use of plugins, you can first use the smudge tool to soften it a bit. Then add a touch of "noise" so it doesn't look 'too photoshoped', then duplicate the layer and add a vignette shaped mask to it but ...

I think the photo has 3 "effects" Vignetting. Some adjustments on contrast (curves). A slight color grading. Probably some saturation adjustments. I think it is a trend to give and "old look", or "film look", washed out, lost memories, etc. With a "trend" is one of many: dragan, tone mapping, "hdr", black and white, grainy, high contrast... Yeap, ...

It looks like this filter uses a high black level and adds a yellow cast. One way to see this is by starting with the instagram version and looking at what it takes to make it look "normal". Here is my normalized version of the instagram version: I used the darkest area as the black level, which was (.161, .125, 090) in the original. I then use a white ...

Your version has more contrast than the instagram filter. Try reducing overall contrast to get closer, then reduce the highlights and/or increase the shadows if necessary. Once you've done this you may need to reduce overall brightness to compensate for the increase in the shadows. You may also want to decrease overall saturation a tad. The instagram result ...
