Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting skin tone, part of Photoshop Elements 11 Essential Training: 2 Editing & Retouching Photos.
Whether you're shooting in a controlled lighting environment in a studio, or in…more casual environment, it can be difficult to get the skin tones in your…subjects just right in your photographs.…That's okay, because you can tweak skin tone in post processing, and the Expert…edit workspace has a feature that will help you with that, the Adjust Color…for Skin Tone feature.…This feature works directly on the photo.…So I'm going to duplicate this photo before I get started.…I'll go over to the Layers panel, I'll right-click on the Background layer that…contains the photo, and I'll choose Duplicate Layer.…
I'll click OK and then I'm going to work on the Background copy layer.…I'll go up to the Enhance menu at the top of the screen and down to Adjust…Color > Adjust Color for Skin Tone.…That opens the Adjust Color for Skin Tone dialog with some simple instructions…about how to use the feature.…Basically it says to come into the image and click on the subject's skin, and the…place where you click determines the initial adjustment to the skin tone.…
