ugly green, blown out spot

I can manage everything about making this image ok except the burnt out, tinged area on his lift hand.

Any hints how I can add texture and remove this ugly yellow tinge to this spot?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there

I just made a loose selection of the area then used a curves adjustment to decrease yellow and increase magenta... Then hid all on the mask and painted back in with a low opacity brush.

I did about the same thing. Made a loose selection of the yellow area, Did a Selective Color adjustment (pop up the "Colors chooser) on the yellows. Decreased yellow and added some magenta and a touch of blue. Gausian blur the mask.

I also did about the same as above. I made a selection of the hand, cloned the spot out on the side of the hand, and used selective color on the rest using the yellow.

Not sure what you are looking for, but I added some noise to the hand.

Re: ugly green, blown out spot

overall the whole image is very yellow.....add some blue, and that should cover the hand issue.

Re: ugly green, blown out spot

Hi again

There is not a lot of grain detail or texture in your picture... However if you want to add some texture you can do the following;

Find a highres picture of the side of a hand... I used the stock.xchng.

I copied the section needed to a new layer

I desaturated the skin.

Then used the highpass filter adding enough to capture the skin texture.

I then copied this layer and placed it into your picture... rotated as needed then changed the blendmode to overlay

I then sharpened this layer only to bring out the texture.

I added a mask and blended as needed.

Below this layer I filled a solid layer with skin color then reduced opacity as needed.

i duplicated the layer, used eyedropper tool to select a color from just out side the damaged area. added new layer set blending mode to color and painted over the damaged area reduced opacity to 69 percent.

Converted to cmyk and found the blown out area in the magenta channel. I burned the highlights until it matched the surrounding values.

Edit: changed pix to lighten hand a little.
