Re: Big Red Dot

The green and blue channels are history...
I'd make a BW from the red channel..

Re: Big Red Dot

bring the picture into Lab color mode, make a selection of the red area, then do a curves on the a, & b, around with them until you start to match the skintone, you can clean the rest up with you regular ps tools.

Re: Big Red Dot

There is no easy way that I know of. It would be helpful if you posted a larger size photo. For details on how to do that click: HERE .

The first step that I did was to look at the channels in RGB, CYMK, and Lab.
I decided to do what has been suggested, and that is to use the channel mixer and select the red channel and convert to black and white. Then work on the spot in Grayscale using a new layer with overlay blending mode and a black or white brush.

Next colorize the grayscale.
