Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting color and contrast, part of Photoshop CS3 Portrait Retouching Techniques.
So far we have been making some great progress with our image here.…What I want to do in this movie is work on the color.…A lot of times you start to work on an image you think, you know what the color looks great,…I like the way everything is looking, yet we need to double-check something here.…What we want to do is double-check the skin tone.…So we're going to select the Eyedropper tool by pressing the I key on the keyboard or selecting that from the toolbox.…Next, hold down the Shift key, we're going to click on the chin here.…That's a nice spot to check for our color skin tone.…Then in the info palette we'll take our Eyedropper to the CMYK color.…
Now what we're looking for CMYK color is a yellow that's a little bit higher than a magenta…and our cyan that's one-third to one-fifth of the magenta or the yellow.…Now that may sound a little strange to you.…So let me show you how this works.…We're going click on the Adjustment Layer icon and choose Curves.…What I'm going to do first is I'm going to go into this magenta channel, I'm going to go to my green-magenta channel.…
