  • How can i add color to a pale face :)

    Hello, Any suggestions on how to add color to skin/face. I'm getting worse results every time I try an i'm out of ideas. Here is a picture of what the skin tone looks like, see how white and pale and my nose seems gone. How would I darken it or give the photo a nice summer tan. lol Thank you for your time in reading this.

    You would be illustrating detail, not just adding a little color. My suggestion is to let this one go. If it was less extreme I might suggest channel mixer to deepen things a bit.

      This is really bad. The loss of detail will limit what can be done and the end result will not look natural. Best alternative is to turn down the flash and take another picture.

        I'll work on this for a bit longer. Thank you for replying back

            Here is an idea.
            Hue and saturation
            Light painting for the nose

              too much detail is gone. It'd be a lot more than just adding color. Ofc anything is doable though.

                  What you need to add is detail, more than just color. Color can be added by using a layer in a suitable mode, like soft light.
                  To get the most out of a washed out overexposed photo I make a copy of the layer and puts it above with Multiply mode. Eventually with some tweaking of the Layer Blending options, to avoid the darker areas to be completely black.
                  Here's a quick Multiply.

                    This is with a warm photo applied as a source for color match.

                      Numerous curves adjustment layers applied via selectively the mask for detail, contrast; paint with facial colours in colour mode.

                        I wouldn't use softlight or multiply. I would rely on adjustment layers, not blending modes. They won't solve anything, but they will create new problems.

                        The problem with this one remains that the face doesn't have any detail. If you darken it, you'll just get a darker solid color in many of these areas. You would be drawing her face in as I mentioned. It wouldn't be that realistic, and you would certainly need other images of the same person for reference to even get close.
