If the skin tones are too pink, what is the best method to correct this? What is the easiest method to correct?
Thanks. gus

Selective color- REDS - Turn the magenta slider down , may be you want to turn the yellow down too (but less) so it doesn't look green.

In Photoshop CS2 or just about any version, go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation, click next to "Master" and select "red" and move the saturation slider down until it looks good. You are only desaturating the reds in the image. If necessary, lasso a selection around the part of the face you need to work on before using the above trick.
As you know, there are literally hundreds of ways to do the same thing in Photoshop. This version works for me whenever I have someone sunburned or with blemishes. Arkie

besides adjusting the hue, you might try using the levels adjust and play with the midtone slider a bit. luma and contrast also effects color rendition.

This is always worth a try...
Hue & Sat... Select Red... Hue + 5 to 10 (depending on subject)... Lightness - 5 to 10 (depending on subject)...

Using this method (or Selective Color from the post above) are great but I use an adjustment layer in case I ever change my mind and want to make further adjustments.

Layer>New Adjustment Layer... or click the little icon at the bottom on the layers palette.
