Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting faces with the Color Range command, part of Photoshop CS6 Selections and Layer Masking Workshop.
In some cases you'll want to create a selection of a range of colors and those …colors will happen to be skin tones. For example, if you're working on a …portrait, you might want to apply some adjustments to refine the overall …appearance of skin tones, maybe adjusting color to improve the appearance for example. …And a new feature of Photoshop CS6 makes it remarkably easy to select skin tones …in an image. Let's take a look at how it's done. …I'll go ahead and choose Select and then Color Range from the menu. …That will bring up the color range dialog. …I want to start off now by choosing from the select popup, skin tones.…
And this is a new option that allows me to select skin tones relatively automatically. …I'll go ahead and choose that option. And you can see in the preview area …already I have a pretty good selection of just the skin tones. …I'll go ahead and set the selection preview option to grey-scale so that we …can get a better sense of the selection as it's being created. …
