Hey GG'ers,

Hoping somebody can give me a hand. I seem to have "issues" getting skin tone just right during my post-processing. I shoot digital so PS is my darkroom. Curious if any of you guys can point me to some tutorials and such on how to use the "Channels" to get correct skin tone and/or other methods for correcting skin tone. An example of what I'm looking for is if it's too red, do what, if it's too blue, do what etc.

Take care,
Brent

Brent,
As is the case in PS, there are always several ways for doing things. As to skin tone adjustment, one way is to use the Selective Color adjustment. Depending on the image you may want to use the red channel and reduce magenta, or you may have to use the yellow channel and reduce both magenta and yellow. This is all a matter of taste and the individual layer. I also use this adjusment for skies, I use the cyan channel and move the black slider to the right and it will deepen blues. I use it to whiten teeth by doing a selection around the teeth and pulling yellow out of the yellow channel. So this is just one way to do many things. Hope this helps.

Nick

Hi Brent.

There is another way. Its a bit simply I think. You can use only the color ballance, what you can find in the image/adjustments menu. (same where the selective color is.) You need to do a selection what you would like to change,after that you need to desaturate that part of image (still in image/adjustments) and then you can play with the colors by pulling the scroll bar in color ballance.
I dont have a picture of a woman, couse Im not a photographer just a webdesigner, but once I had to change the color of a motorcycle to get a better look. So maybe it will do for an example

original color


This is a better look isnt it


So good luck!
