Restoring chemical damage on photo
it looks to me like you're tyring to paint right on the same layer. Have you tried creating separate empty layers for say the hair, the lips, the face... etc and painting the colors on those layers. Then set the layer blending mode to Color.
read the tutorial the power of layer masks
I just figured it out and it's awesome. exactly what you need.
just think about it this way.
Say we want to deal with the hair (deal with one thing at a time).
duplicate your layer that has all the fixes.
make adjustments to color to make sure the one thing you care about (hair) looks exactly the way you want it. Ignore the other parts of the photo.
Hold down alt while clicking the layer mask button (it's a rectangle with a circle in it in the bottom of the layers window). This turns the layer into a layer mask.
now click on the black square next to the photo for that layer (the mask)
use a brush set to half opacity and the white color and paint over the hair. It will reveal the changes you applied to the image only for that area.
Now you can repeat for the other parts of the photo.
Thank you so much for your kindness!!
I agree with WhidbeyPix
