  • Color turns gray when Painting in color mode

    Hi folks,

    when I Dodge&Burn and I want to correct the de-/oversaturated areas with painting in desired color on a blank layer set to neutral, it the color turns to be gray in some areas. Can somebody tell me why?

      Many times when something seems wrong in PS there is a simple sollution, so Ill throw out some suggestions:

      Maybe you sample from "current layer" being your neutral grey layer. Just check your foreground color to see if it really has a skin tone.

      Also check the blend mode on your brush.

      If your layer blend mode is color, your brush mode is normal, and your forground color really is a skin tone, then id think some layer above is affecting your adjustments..

        Pay particular attention to what Der_W says, and look at his youtube video.
