Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Color-correcting medium dark skin tones, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Essentials.
In this movie we will be working on the file Jasper.jpeg.…Go and open that one up in Photoshop.…This is a portrait that I captured of the fellow photographer earlier this year.…We want to color correct this image.…Command plus to zoom in a little bit there.…Now, I've already set an eyedropper point for you.…I've cheated a little bit.…We can look at those CMYK numbers.…So, let's click on the eyedropper so that you can see the point.…There is it.…let's look at our CMYK numbers.…Well, you are noticing that the numbers, the percentages are much higher.…
that's because we have skin with more density.…So, that's one of the ways that we are going to notice that these numbers are going to shift.…let's color correct this image.…we will click on the Curve Adjustment layer and choose Get all the curves.…Now, the Curves dialog is open.…What channel do I want to work on?…One thing I notice is that Magenta and Yellow are pretty close.…The Cyan channel or the Red Cyan channel that is way off the chart.…So, there is something wrong there.…
