Howdy folks,

I would like to know what technique you might use to make a lady who is very pale look like they have been tanning? I use photoshop CS and would like to fix up some ladies who are very pale.

Thanks

One quick and dirty way is to use the Sponge tool that is grouped with the dodge and burn tools. Set the options to Saturate and a very low percentage like 5%.. You can make multiple passes until you get it looking the way you want..

I'm sure there are better methods as always..

Morgan,

The December 2003 issue of Photoshop User Magazine demonstrated what appears to be a pretty simple way of doing this. I have never tried it, but here are the steps if you want to try. Post a before and after when you are done and let us know if this really works:

1. Open your image
2. Duplicate the Background Layer
3. Go under Image --> Adjustments and choose Selective Color
4. When the dialog comes up, change the colors pick list to "Red" and enter 0 for Cyan, +70 for Megenta, +100 for Yellow and +84 for Black and make sure Relative is checked. Don't press OK
5. In the same Selective Color diaglog, change the colors pick list to "Whites" and enter 0 for Cyan, +67 for Magenta, +97 for Yellow, +51 for Black and make sure Relative is checked. Press OK.
6. Choose the History Brush from the tool box, go to the History palette and click in the left column next to the words Duplicate Layer.
7. Choose a fairly large, soft-edged Brush and paint back the areas you don't want to become tan (hair, shirt, etc.)
8. If the effect is too strong (too tan), lower the opacity for this duplicate layer.

Good luck!

Morgan,
The technique that I use to make people "tan" is:
adjustments>photo filter, then use a warming filter, play with the % until you get the desired effect on the skin. Then you can mask out the areas that you don't want "tanned".
I found this to be the easiest/best way for me because you can later adjust the effect if needed and can still add/subtract on the mask.

Good Luck!

Like Jason said, Warming Filter.

I do it on a duplicate layer and adjust the layer's opacity.

This is a quickie one that I do, it won't work with evey shot, but I have used it quite a bit..


Go into Saturation and boost it, you will see the skin get plenty of color, go a little bit more than what looks good.

Then go to Bightnness/Contrast and brighten it up a bit (the color will deminish) and then add some Contrast..
