The main goal with skin is to keep the yellow % higher than the magenta %. Fair skin can be as low as 15-20% magenta and 20-25% yellow, while a person with a tan or deeper skin color may be 35-45 magenta and 60% yellow. Magenta should rarely ever go past the 45% mark.
*** To measure skin tones – take the eye dropper tool, and click on the skin. It will then put the numbers in the info box.If your skin is off, I will be showing ways to correct color in upcoming weeks, so stay tuned.
I will be explaining: color balance, selective color, hue/saturation, and using levels and curves to adjust color.
