Skin Tone Problem

I photographed this girl and now trying to even out her skin tone on thighs and lower stomach. I need some advise on how to get it right. I have used healing brush but very time consuming...is there an easier way?

Re: Skin Tone Problem

First off welcome to RetouchPro...
Second please read the FAQs before posting... found here
IE:
FAQ, Why can't I post tasteful nudes?
This has nothing to do with prudery. I've gotten emails from schools across America and Canada telling me how valuable a resource RetouchPRO is for teaching their children. This makes me very proud, and I do not want to betray that trust. In addition, RetouchPRO has members from countries around the world, and not all of them have the same opinions about what is appropriate. And finally, I don't want RetouchPRO to become a destination for webrats looking for hot pix.

Re: Skin Tone Problem

Re: Skin Tone Problem

Easist method I know if you are not a pro both photography and retouching
add yellow to reds with selective color general or with feathered large losso
if it i not ok make little bit curve adjustment..

Re: Skin Tone Problem

Hi there

I believe there was a thread within the last few days covering this problem...

There is a good routine that often makes fast work of this problem. You can find it HERE

I like to change a few things myself... I use the blur last and Vivid Light rather then Linear Light.

In your example I used 3 percent of Highpass and 1 of blur.
