>> Male Speaker: In this next movie, I'm going to simply showcase a file with some corrections that have already been made to start to think about variety in skin. One of the big questions is, well how do you color correct different types of skin? Well I have this snapshot of these family friends of mine and because they're a multiethnic family, it provides us with this unique challenge to color correct the image so the numbers are correct for all the different types of skin. Well if you look in the Info palette, you'll notice that all the numbers are right on.
The one that is off is number one, and that makes sense. I think that Steve was a little sunburned that day so you're seeing a little bit more magenta there. How were those corrections made? Well if you go back to the file browser, there's a screen grab of the Curves Adjustment Layer that was created in order to correct that image. They're also included in this corrections folder so that you can click through those and see how those work. But I just wanted to showcase that because I find that it's really important to see how the numbers vary. And remember that if there is one number that's going to vary from skin type to skin type, it's going to be cyan.
Occasionally it will vary from the one third to one fifth, depending on the tone or the darkness of the skin. Alright. Well this wraps up our look at color correcting skin by the numbers. I want to highlight that there is an extra file in that folder, this one, Kristin.psd. It would be a great file to practice on. Practice on this one. See if you can color correct by the numbers, this particular file, or try one of your own. I'll see you in the next movie.
