Re: Help with skin

Bit of a broad question. why would body parts not match firstly :-)

Look up Portrait Retouching. Skin Retouching. (google)

It's a long hard process sometimes


Dodging & Burning.
Spot Tool
Healing Brush Tool

Most things I would say could be done if your a pro. Post a picture and give examples of what you mean and Im sure there will be lots of advice.

Start with simple color correction.
Then Levels, curves, hue/saturation adjustment layers to match color of body part needed, apply mask and go to town make sure not to get distracted, work one body part at the time.

Re: Help with skin

I find if another color dominates another color (lets say red) in the skin tone I...

open, hue/sat
select that color in the drop down
lower the sat of that color only...for a quick fix
