      I used the term friend pretty loosely. We hooked up in a photoshop NG.

        have you tried it to make a selection of the flesh tones and convert image to LAB mode.
        by increase L value in midtone, and for pinning A and B channel in midtone while playing around with 1/4 tone value should give you the result.

        good luck. and have the patience. i am for using photoshop since 1992 and am having the questions also, but am also happy to giving the help sometimes.

          Stupid question on Saving Selections`
          by imann08
          This came up for me while working on an image in LAB so I'll use that. I copied the original and saved a channel as a selection into a new document. The image in the new document looks like it's been inverted. When I load that selection into the original file it goes back to looking as it did when I...

          Face washed out ???
          by dustyshop
          I've been working on this for a couple of weeks and can not get the right side and middle of face right.
