  • Colorize white spots of skin

    Hi together, I'm relatively new in this forum and this is my first question. I try to find a solution to colorize the white spots of the skin without loosing the available texture. Can anybody give me a good hint how to accomplish this?

    I worked with the healing brush and the stamp. On the back of the hand it works relatively fine, because there is enough texture to copy but the fingers!? So I want to know if there is a possibility only to colorize the spots with the darker skin tone?

    Thanks for your attention and your inputs...

    Daniel, you can Dodge & Burn (mostly burn) those white areas to the point where the brightness or darkness matches the surrounding skin, then just recolor by sampling adjacent good skin color and painting on a blank layer set to color blend mode (sample attached).

      I'd say (without trying) that patch tool on a copied layer can do the trick, probably have to lower the opacity of this layer afterwards...Then paint at lower opacity, sampling the color nearby in a separate layer, blending mode set to color.

          Thanks "4personnen" this was my first try to accomplish the result, but it didn't work so well on the fingers. But I will try it also again with your hint. Thanks for help me!

                Hi Daniel

                At first i would put a sauration layer above the whole image to make it blak and grey.
                Then mask the white spots and adjust it with a Levels-Layer. Darken the light and the midtones.

                If it looks good in Greyscale, drop the saturation layer an recolor the spots with a new layer set to color.

                Regards,
                Chris

                  Thank you all for your inputs. Every hint was very helpful, but really the major problem is to adjust the luminance level of the spots with the surrounding area. The rest with layer to color is only peanuts.

                  Thank you very much!!
