Lightroom how to question??

It's been awhile since I've visited, but I thought if anybody knew how to do this, then you guys would know.......In lightroom I'm trying to change the white balance tint on just the skin tones of the subject and not the overall image. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Make a duplicate of the image in Lightroom and do your changes overall that will affect the skin and drop the original without changes on top of the changed image making a layer and mask the unchanged image and paint through the mask what you want to show through the mask of the new skin area under the mask on the bottom layer.

Thanks Wolfman. That would require using photoshop. I could just do the whole think in photoshop with a layer mask or just use a quickmask and select only the face if I wanted to. I was just thinking there would be an easy way in lightroom to do it.

Have you tried the HSL sliders in Lightroom? Without layers it's kind of difficult to do selective
color adjustments.

Have you tried lightroom 2.0? It allows you to correct exposure, contrast, color, saturation, like if you are workin in a layer, and can mask it too. Amazing, for some kind of work.

Often wonder that.. One of the bummers with Lightroom and or aperture.
You can not put several effects on the image with out opening it again after each effect.
Forget masking... That would be a miracle.
Many work in between LR and PS using export to do so.. It works quite well but you do have to use photoshop, which is IMHO essential after whatever Program like LR.
My work flow is usually Capture One For RAW then either to LR or photoshop or both.
If your working on skin you should be doing it in Photoshop anyways and with the Eye dropper to make sure your getting the right tones anyhow.
I do not like LR nor ACR for RAW conversion which will also make it another step in the workflow.
Lately been just making slideshows with Lighroom and to view the images sometimes.

Lightroom 2.0, as Javier says will allow you to do the cc on just the flesh. It has some excellent correction tools for skin, and if you bring the image in as a Smart Object those corrections will still be editable back in LR at any time right from PS.
