There are a few ways to go, but this was the first Photoshop method I tried on the image - another time I might try something else:

On a duped layer:

Presuming sRGB as the original intent behind the images brightness...

Apply Image command - source: red channel, target RGB composite channel, blend mode screen 50% opacity...then perhaps the fade command to luminosity or whatever you like.

Then add blend if sliders to exclude the deep shadows (opt/alt click to split [gradate] the sliders blend range). Then a quick layer mask to hide other unwanted areas of the blend.


Regards,

Stephen Marsh.

I used the Diffuse Glow filter, and a mask to do this.

I choose a color for her skin (RGB: 200,158,109) and set this as the paint swatch background color .
I duplicated the image layer, applied Diffuse Glow at 0,17,14.
I then applied a layer mask and masked off areas I wanted to keep.

Could you be more specific about what you're having problems with?
"can't masked off"
Is that because of the software you are using, or because you don't know how to use layer masks?

Here is a screenshot of how the layers and the mask look.
This will show you how it is supposed to look. You'll have to take it from here.
