Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing skin, part of Photoshop CS5: Fashion Retouching Projects.
At this stage one of things that I want to do is start to work on the color.…In particular I want to work on the color of the skin tone.…So in order to do that, let's click on the adjustment layer icon for Curves.…Now with Curves we're going to brighten this up a little bit, adding some…nice brightness there.…We'll then go on to the Red channel and bring in just a hint of red and also go…on to the Blue/Yellow channel and maybe just a little bit of yellow there.…I want to be careful with the yellow, because it can become too dense.…
Go back to the RGB composite, a little more brightening effect.…We have some really nice color there, yet I want to limit this to the area of the skin.…To do that click on the Mask icon, then go to Color Range.…Now with Color Range what we can do is sample an area of the skin, hold down…the Shift key, and just click-and-drag around this so that we can sample all of this skin.…This will give us the ability to have an adjustment which primarily affects…this area of the image.…
