Join Timothy Sexton for an in-depth discussion in this video Balancing skin tones, part of Photoshop Retouching: Skin.
Okay, so let's go in now and let's balance her skin off a bit.…And the first thing we're going to do is…identify the areas that do need to be balanced.…And you can see all of this cyan concentrated in here,…and you can see all of this magenta concentrated in here.…Hands and feet are the areas that you want to usually…concentrate on when color balancing a full shot like this.…The blood rushes to those areas due to the…fact that the model has probably been standing there…for a long time while the photographer works.…So just always pay extra attention to the feet, hands, and the legs.…
So what we're going to do to balance this skin off, is…we're going to use my formula of creating a hue sat move.…So Option+Cmd+U, right here into the Skin layer set.…Let's hit OK.…And we're going to go down to the reds right…here and we're going to do a minus seven. I'll just type that in on my keyboard.…And we're going to do a plus seven in the hue right here, and…again just move it up and then use my keyboard to type it in.…
