I masked out the shadow areas on the neck and arm, and on a new layer set to screen mode @ 80% i dropped in a neautral skin color from the better lit areas of her neck. basically did same thing for dress. just dropped in a blue that worked.

then cleaned up a bit with a cloning layer.

one thing i noticed is when i save for web, my image gets really saturated...and starts to look blotchy...but not the case on my working file.

KR1156,
What do you mean by "dropped in a neautral skin color from the better lit areas of her neck"

Thumbs down

"dropped in a neautral skin color from the better lit areas of her neck"

I just basically used my eye dropper tool to pick up a color in the neck area where there was no shadow interference. Neautral meaning midtone, not a spot to light or a spot too dark, somewhere in the middle.

*when you make a new layer and drop a new color on an area, play with the different layer modes.

Hope that helped.

OK...so you used the dropper tool to select the proper color, then you used the paint bucket tool to "drop" the color onto the new layer?

after i use the eye dropper tool to set my color, i then hit option>delete to fill the area with the color. I work on a mac only, i dont know the PC keys, sorry. (i dont like using the paint bucket tool)

then you basically want to mask that color over the affected area as neat as possible.
