Re: Yellow children (skintone balance issue)

thanks for the numbers atw, I used a luminosity mask too at the the end, which I made in ACR. Lots of tips for future use!

Re: Yellow children (skintone balance issue)

Smoothfluid, I've learned a couple ways, both quick sometimes one works better than the other.
1. duplicate layer- apply filter "average" use a curves layer and click on your new one color layer with with the grey eye dropper. Now delete the averaged layer.

2. (Much better with this image) Find a white item in the image and take a five by five sample with the eye dropper (I used a sample from the white t-shirt on the right) create a new blank layer and fill with this color with the paint bucket. Now invert that layer, switch blend mode to color and back the opacity off to about 50%.

You're welcome.
I was just playing with that second method. Try swtching the blend mode to hue and set the opacity to 25% or so, see what you think.

Try a curves adjustment layer - pump up the blue channel and then pull out some in the red channel and change the blending mode to color. Fun photo, by the way.
