I want to first thank everyone for their help in this photo. I am printing photos of our wedding. We didn't get a photo of my wife, me, and her parents outside where everyone else got photos. We want them to match in our scrapbook. I took a photo from inside - erased the background (which isn't done all that well, but I"ll fix it). What I am looking for is to make the skin tones look like they were taken outside. The skin is to Orange/Red to have been taken outside.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. The image can be found here.

site is still uploading as of this post.

Re: Lighting
Hi There

So much goes into proper lighting... it would help if you posted a picture that was taken outside that day.

Chris, your image is 80MB and your link is slow. Solutions to your problem can be well demonstrated with much smaller file sizes.
That being said, attached is one example of a correction.
On the layer with only the people, do a Image > Adjust > Autocolor.
Next just add a Hue / Sat Layer and select the Red channel. I lowered the Saturation by about 10 and shifted the Hue to +4. You can tweak it to your taste but to match it up exactly to the other photos, as Butch points out, we would need some other reference photo. Finally I just copied the group and pasted it above you composite image.
Regards, Murray
