  • Pale skin tutorial help

    Could someone point me in the right direction for correcting skin tone that is faded and basically no color at all. I had this example from one of the challenges. I usualy create a blank layer and color on it with the color chart, but it looks silly that way. Thanks!

    Much of your skin colour info is intact in this image, your casting (Pinkish colour) is your issue in the midtones.
    What I would suggest is to go into your selective colour, and choose your neutrals, and remove and replace colour til you get a desired result in your midtone range. Your midtones are faded and colour cast as well as stained.
    Levels can help with midtones.. see a very short somewhat crude example here.

          Thanks terivon that great! I'll try to go from there.

          Kem,

          Yes it has been through. It was in the challenges but i needed a example picture of pale colorless skin so i used that one. It seems that most pictures i do end up like this one. I'll be satisfied with all the other tones on the picture except with the skin tones. I wasn't sure if people mask out the skin or select it or if after the overall picture was corrected the skin tone should be corrected. Thanks all!

              Quick Mask

              I'd personally quick mask the areas and then adjust using image->Adjust->Hue/Saturation/Lightness

                Thanks Cassidy i think i like it that way instead of painting. It looks more natural.
