I've never seen that techique before... quite interesting. Although I don't use PS like I used to (I use LR for 99.5% of my image processing), I can see myself using this to understand and ultimately creating some new starter presets based by deconstructing images tones & color and creating some custom ones based on personal taste.

Just discovered this last week and it's so useful for compositing! At work I've been creating photos with co-workers added into old movie posters and this tutorial has been invaluable.

I can imagine this technique would work perfectly for that! It really is a great tutorial. :)
