how to remove red blood stains from hands

Hi Everyone!
my today's problem is how to remove the red blood stains from hands while the face is white (see attachment-sorry I had to remove eyes in order of rights and permissions-even if uploading such a light pic doesn't help a lot, I guess I should post somewhere else on this site)...I do have some idea about but I'll appreciate your advice. Enjoy! Paolo

Welcome aboard, Jarulex.

You have posted a very small (thumbnail) version. It is hard to see what the problem is, let alone how best to fix it.

Check HERE link for info on how to post a larger picture.

Re: how to remove red blood stains from hands

you should try using adjustments layers with a layer mask of the part that you want to improve. I think that hue/saturation adjustment layer will help you at first.

Try this setting in apply image. You will need to restore the red in the lips after though.

Re: how to remove red blood stains from hands

Hi Chris, thanks for your super ad!
1) Meanwhile I did some test by myself and I realised that the point was to choose the Blend Mode 'Lighter Color' so I had some interesting result with a white brush (7-10%) set in that mode. Do you agree?
2) By the way I have to admit that I never tried before that 'Apply Image' powerful option. This reason why I wish learn more about. Could you suggest me a Tutorial or something else?
I had a look at your site, I'm speechless, I like everything in it (including the white fresh design) I have seen that you wrote (at least) two books- I guess I'll buy them.
I'm not one of the fabulous Photographers who are your clients, but how I could have an idea of your price list?

Re: how to remove red blood stains from hands

I used a selective color adjustment layer and backed off on the magenta. Of course you can paint out the mask as needed for the lips, etc.
