Photoshop CS3 Color Correction: Skin Tones

IN this video, host Taz Tally helps you make skin tone adjustments By Taz Tally

Photoshop CS3 Color Correction is all about color: from customizing Photoshop color settings to accessing color correction tools with keyboard shortcuts to understanding the intricacies of histograms.

Color correction expert Taz Tally Ph.D., explains each step of the process, including how to evaluate an image, determine what steps are required, adjust image dimensions, linear resolution, and mode, identify and correct shadows, remove screens and noise, retouch flaws, use curves and the color sampler, and much more.

In this section Taz evaluates and fixes skin tones. He locates neutral areas in the image. He looks at the histograms to get a sense of the color in the image and then evaluates each. He then shows how to fix some of the highlight areas in an image, and shows the clipping points. He also details some blown out areas so that you can be careful when setting your points.
