Roger, I used "Transform" on his lips -- didn't get the exact change I wanted, but it was an improvement. I tried "Liquify" also, but was unsuccessful and just reverted back to what I had already done.

Smile Thanks to all

I have recieved alot more help then I tought I ever would.
I didn't think there would have that many people who would be willing to even look at his picture. After all it is pretty bad.
I would like to thank everyone for the pictures they are all so wonderful.
More wonderful then I ever dreamed possible.
As I said I tried to retouch but I am not very good and don't know that much about it. So I was never happy with my results. All of you made my baby look so beautiful.
It is more than I ever thought could happen from the photo I have of him.

Thanks to all.

Sincerely,
Andrew's Mom
Rosemarie (Rosie)

Roger,
I had the same trouble at first with his lips because they were so dark. But I think I got them to look very close to natural. Here's what I finally ended up doing.
I selected the lips and surrounding area and copied to a seperate layer. I then used Hue/ Saturation to desaturate the color from them. I then used curves on the black and white layer to lighten his lips to the proper levels. I used Hue/ Saturation again and checked the box named color. I adjusted the hue slider to give a nice pink color. I applied a layer mask and with a soft brush I masked out the area around the lips leaving just the lips exposed. I then used a low opacity burn tool to darken just the shadow line where the lips come together.

Andrew's Mom,
You're welcome. As you can see we were all delighted to help out.
DJ

You're welcome Chuck. I can't say it's the best way to handle the situation but it seemed to work best for any technique I could come up with. Glad you could get some use out of it.
DJ
