Re: Color correction on skin and full photo

Also, Its awesome to just sometimes do a non destructive step like this...

Go to the adjustment layers in the Layers Pallette...and choose the "Photo Filter Adjustment layer"

This now allows you to change the whole look and feel of the skin color as if you put a glass filter in front of your camera has the warming filter and other colors...but the one I like is the custom color.

Just dab a color from a skin pallette from above, or another skin image you like, or just try any skin looking kind of color...and this filter puts up a color correction that you can see real time, and its non destructive, which means, it doesnt clog up the textures below it. You can experiment with the color and the percentage of strength of the filter if you want to warm up skin tones, or make them more olive, or add a more yellow or orange component to the existing skin tones.

Re: Color correction on skin and full photo

Suzzie - thanks for the tip - I've been using a poor man's version of that method and wondered why the faces become plasticky.

Also, I use the curvemeister plug-in as it does the job for you with their skin pins. I took one of their courses and it moved my learning forward immensely, as well as being good fun.

thanks Mandy
