Re: remove forehead/face shine and weird coloring

On this photo is used a low opacity brush 15% and sampled the color near each bright area and painted it in. To add a little skin texture back I used the healing brush. The picture is a little small to work on, but you can see the area of concern has been removed.

The size of the picture made the second one more difficult--for me that is--to work on. I darkened the picture and took out the yellow cast on the back wall. Selected the door on the back wall and tried to match its color the the door on the right.

I don't know if this fully answers your questions or not. There are others with more experience that may be able to give you a better solution to your inquiry. This, at least, is a start.

lol yeah that is a lot better. thanks. the pictures are so small because to upload them, the forum required them to be under 100 kb. i found the thread on here to help me change the size so that it should be easier to work with the pictures.

Re: remove forehead/face shine and weird coloring

lilredchiq, Welcome to RetouchPRO.. hope you have a nice stay.. feel free to look around and ask or give help when needed..

My take on your pictures.. I might be wrong, BUT, It would seem to me that a group of beautiful women who are dressed so nicely could afford shoes!

Re: remove forehead/face shine and weird coloring

The healing brush set to darken works well on shine.
Sample an area near where you want the shine remove click the alt key to choose that area then apply with the healing tool at a low opacity.
Fixing the color can be tricky, there's a million ways.
If you have a grey area you can use levels to set the grey point.
You can also paint a color on a layer on top and change the blend mode to color then
adjust the opacity or hue/sat.
Auto color in Photoshop is another option. Do it on a duplicate and you can lower the opacity for a more muted change.
Good luck with you photos.

Re: remove forehead/face shine and weird coloring

I do something similiar to what lilysharon said, except I use clone set to darken and saturation at about 30%. I also use the patch tool and fade effect to taste in order to smooth down uneven skin texture areas (bumps/zits/etc). For blemish/dark marks/etc I do the reverse with the clone tool and set it to lighten at around 30%. For the wierd coloration, the thing I found that worked the best (and you might want to try this) is to duplicate the layer. With the copy layer, change to sepia - set sepia tone to a dark chocolate brown - to create more of a mocha tone, then reduce the opacity on that copy layer down to like 30 or 20%. Other things I did were to increase blacks by about 10% and did a dark contrast of about 7% (using tint/tone/color).

Re: remove forehead/face shine and weird coloring

Yup for color cast like this (camera definatly not set to the right white balance) I like the method described here by lillysharon, you pick a color selection from something that should be white only has a cast and then create a color blend layer with the inversed color, then lower the opacity.
On this image I found that bringing it into camera raw was the trick. Both auto settings and the cast was gone. ACR, camera raw is free from photoshop and a must have, IMHO.
