    Hi Everyone,

    Colour correcting skin by volume

    I have been frustrated by the flat, pinkish (or greyish), sallow look of skin from various digital cameras. Only recently, I tried the conversion to CMYK then entering values (Y30,M24,C8) which seems to work fairly well most of the time for caucasian skin. Only problem is this workflow is very time...

    Here is a picture that was shot in a hotel room using only available light, probably a sick mixture of various temperatures.

  • Water Damage

    Hey everyone, my first time attempting at restoring water damaged photos. Other ones i have done have turned out great but haven't had much success with this one. I've used my clone/heal and even tried with the channel mixing but to no avail any tips or a crack at this would be greatly appreciated! I think mostly im having this issue is because of the colour. its skin toned but the water caused it to go red.. Cloning makes it look absolutley horrible. Again TIA.

    Try selecting areas that have discolored and Layer via copy (ctrl J) and adjust color using Hue and saturation. For the cyan dress, since it is discolored in blotches, select the dress and ctrl J again and desaturate, then apply color balance adding cyan and a bit of blue, Use layer mask to remove overlapping during selection.
    For the boy's face retouch the left side and select it and again ctrl J and flip horizontally and replace the right side, Use layer mask to show hair and flatten. This is not the only way, others may have a better/easier process.

      Thanks for that, and for the Step by Step. I hadn't quite learned how to use it like that. Eager to try with this one again, and other ones i have on the go.

        Selected the damaged skin areas, placed a colour sampler in both the stained and untouched skin then used curves adjustment layers to match the two. Applied with a mask and soft brush then the healing brush to blend the two. Went on with colour adjustments, remove colour casts, etc.
