Re: Neutralize warm skin

Hi Chris,

I used a levels adjustment layer and brought the individual channels into the majority of the information. Used a Selective colour adjustment layer and lowered the yellow and red information. Used an auto curves adjustment layer.

I would look at getting the original photograph more technically correct, it will save trying to correct it later.

Re: Neutralize warm skin

Here's my run at it. Worked to tone down the obvious reds in the original skin. Went for a skin tone you might see under a white light.

Re: Neutralize warm skin

Just my two cents for all it's worth, I really like Dave's because he just dealt w/ the face. What really makes the picture is the wheat. When Dave changed the face but left the wheat the way it was, it...changed it...from just another picture to something that draws the eye. All the others adjusted the whole picture, and as a result the wheat was sacrificed.

Anyway, that is just my two cents. If you want more it will cost you a nickel. :-)

Re: Neutralize warm skin

Hi there,

Good results above,

made a mask for the skin from channel a (Lab mode), duplicated bckgnd to a new layer desaturated applied the mask of the skin, set the layer op down till it seemed natural (about 30%), softlight layer used to remove sharp shade from his face, got the color cast by dupe bckgnd 2times filled with 50%black the top at blending mode luminosity merged down, i saw there are different cast of color on his face so painted the same color all over the face by brush op25% and set this layer mode color, got channel green to make mask of the highlight created new layer filled white applied the mask on.

Re: Neutralize warm skin

Here is my try
copied red channel
new layer filled with black, added red channel mask
changed mode to hard light
turned off background and on new layer merged visible
changed mode to soft light
turn on background
new layer merge visible
copy layer
high pass filter
change to overlay

2nd photo added new layer filled with a grey/blue changed mode to hue and changed opacity

Don't know if this is what you want, but these are my two.
