Re: pb with washed out color

try going into lab and messing around with the luminosity channel for the arm area. i think i inverted the information, then brought it back into rgb and layed it over with multiply. then adjusted highlight & shadow. i did it very quickly, but there is some information hidden in the blown out areas to play with.

I know how to fix colors and stuff but I'm not too good when it comes to washed out colors...
I’m sorry for the late response; I didn’t look at your question.
At first I adjusted the levels to bring all hidden details, and then I lower saturation & used masking + layer blending with a color sampled from the face.
All that I had to do with my old laptop & PSP8, I was out of the country at that time.
