    Paint dark red (like #66000) and blue (like #000066) with a big soft brush on a new layer set to Linear Dodge (Add) blend mode around the areas you want to colour. Use brush opacity of around 10%.

        Wow, thanks, that worked nicely. I'm trying to learn all these color techniques now that my retouching is where i want it.

          On another note from that first picture. How do you get that unsaturated look in her slin without making it look to grey or unnatural?

            There could be many ways to do that. I think what you're seeing, if you look at her face, is that she appears to be desaturated because the luminosity (brightness) is very high.

            There are a thousand ways you could do this, but for a super-quick approximation you could duplicate the image on top of itself, set the top layer to Screen with an all-black layer mask and then paint back in the bits you want highlighted/whitened more extremely.

            Alternatively, create a new Curves adjustment layer and bulge the RGB line upwards to increase the apparent exposure of the image. Again, make an all-black layer mask and then paint back in the bits you want.

              Question on cleaning: FS or Image?
              by Keano12
              I have seen number of well known retouchers clean one of two ways and was wondering is one way better then the other or just different way to same results.

              1. Cleanup on a blank layer using healing brush.
              2. Clean up on HF layer using healing brush.

              I have done both...

              color depth question
              by joe_7
              This is going to be a bit technical, so I apologize...

              I do a lot of graphics programming in my spare time. To make a long story short, I am considering upgrading my graphics routines to support more than 32-bit RGBA. The real question is how far to go.

              Moving to 64-bit...
