Fixing & Retouching Skin Tone in Adobe Photoshop

Hi there. This video is all about how to make really quick selections for skin. In this case we just warmed up her skin a little bit and this one here we removed a bit of the red cast from her face, but it's all about how to get this really quick skin selection using adobe Photoshop First thing is in 10 retouching. Open up skin tone one and 2. So skin tone one. We're just going to select and just warm up the skin and skin tone to, we're going to remove just a little bit of red cast. We're going back to a tool we've used before. I've kept it in the retouching section. It's hard to know where to split these things up, but I figured if you're coming back to this, retouching is a good place for it. So what we want to do is select all the skin tones and under select color range. We kind of ignored it earlier on. There's an option that says skin tones and it works pretty good. There's an option that says detect faces and I find that can be good and can be bad. I find in this case it's not wo...

rking as well. I want some of this kind of mid tones here in the skin play around the fuzziness. High, low, I don't want to get it so that it's getting a lot of the skin, but not too much of the background. So this thing here. Think think of it less as detecting faces and think, option one, option two. Option two is fine for me now if yours isn't doing the same as mine you can split it to gray scale down here and let's click OK with that selection, I can go to adjustments and let's say I just want to warm it up but I find the most handy it's using color balance. Is this like little scales here, this balanced one, you can play around with all three of these probably mid tones is going to give us our most adjustment. Okay I'm just going to warm up so go from blue to yellow from sion just a little bit red. Turn the eyeball on and off just to warm up the skin. Now, what you'll also notice is that it grabbed a lot of the background. It's a nice easy way to fix that is to paint it out on the mask but we're going to use our trip. We hold down the option key on a mac or the old key on a Pc and just click on the mask goes fully black and white. Then when we're using our brush tool, black is my foreground color. Make a size hardness, pick that because what I want to do is I want to leave the skin tones but I don't want to mess around with the, the kind of warm colors that are in her clothes that are in the brickwork, make sure it's not sent overlay set to normal overlay can be handy we looked at earlier on but in this case I just want to kind of like built out this real quick zoom off to the side even okay, at the moment, I'm just removing from the mask, so that's only working on your skin. Good. All right now, when we turn it back on the same thing, hold down the option key on a Mac or a Pc now it should only be affecting the skin. Does he have yellow skin a little bit too much in this tutorial? I guess. I'm trying to go a little bit too far, so I'm going to click on it again, lower this down a bit. You might even turn down the opacity of this whole layer. Opacity, slide it down, just warming up. It was a bit gray before I'm happy with that. Let's look at another way of doing it. So, skin tone too. This happens a lot when you're shooting on something like a cell phone, you get some kind of reds in the skin. I'll show you a little trick for this. So we start the same way. So we go to select, we go to color range, we pick skin tones, face detect in this case. Works really good. It's awesome fuzziness. I'm happy where it was. Okay, so I've got a selection now it's up to you whether you're a curves, aura levels, person. I'm more A levels, man myself. Okay, what we're gonna do is instead of trying to just the whole thing, we work on just the red channel. Okay there's information in all three of these channels, you can see green and blue are kind of in the middle here but read it all kind of lumped to the side so what we can do is kind of shift it, we can shift the mid tones and maybe even some of the darker ones just to remove some of the red on off, pulling some of the color out of her here. So I'm going to use my option or bulky and just paint out the bits that I don't need. There's an easy way to slick skin and a few little extra tricks too. Work on your mask, you can move on now. Why I spend a while. What's clicking nice big paintbrush. Remember that shortcut? Still can't remember back control and option key, drag left and right, you know, on a pc. You hold down the control key, click and drag the right mouse button, the weird one, the right click click, hold and drag left and right up and down is the hardness. Alright, option, click it again. So just the skin, just working on the red channel and in this case I removed too much from the hand as well girl, sit down here, it's a bit of red in it. So what I'm gonna do is paint the other way so smaller paintbrush I'm gonna hit X on my keyboard to bring light to the front, I'm going to paint that out again when you get into the corners again. Like I do that and then Toggle X to go back to the black key just painted in because it's it's quite forgiving because it's over this black stuff here. So paint that out and I'm not even going to worry, maybe that's a damn. Alright, so that's how to select skin tones. You might be warming it up with color balance, you might be removing some of the reds if it's got a cyan cast or a green cast to do the same thing, but we're on the green channel in levels or blue green or red. Alright, that's it for this one. I will see you in the next video.

Great class, but outdated PS version. It was confusing sometimes. Some tools are not in PS anymore and more tools have been added which is not included in the course.
