  • skin repair

    Im halfway through trying to restore this image. Im having trouble correcting the damage on the ladys right leg. Im using photoshop cs6. I have tried selecting the area with the pen tool and then applied a curves and a levels adjustment to try and lighten the skin tone but i just cant get a result im happy with. Ive also tried the dodge tool and the color replacement tool. Ive only been practising restoration maybe 3 months so ive run out of ideas. Any other ideas for cleaning up the rest of the image would also be very much appreciated.
    Thank You

    You could try using the healing tool on her leg to get rid of the white portions. Then even out and lighten the skin tone with the dodge tool. Here's an example image of the results of me doing that. Hope this helps!

        Neutralize warm skin
        by ChrisC
        I have an image where the skin of the subject is very warm. I'm trying to neutralize the color and end up with a fairly neutral skin tone. The image started out being about twice as warm as the attached jpg. I've been able to get to this point by using a combination of curves, saturation and channel...

        Adjusting for skin tone only
        by kerijohnson
        I'm wondering if someone could explain in detail how to adjust for the skin tone.
        I'd like to desaturate yet make a warm tone (sepia) skin color without causing the background to change color.
        I've been working with adjustment layers trying to get this result and just can't figure it out....
