Using Layer Masks for Skin Color Correction in Photoshop

This video tutorial builds on yesterday’s layer mask tutorial.  It will teach you how to apply masking so that you can selectively affect parts of your photo when correcting skin tones.  I shared this video on ClickIn Moms as part of their Skin Tone Correction Series that happens every Wednesday – and I wanted to share it with you too.  Check out the contest ending Sunday – for a chance to win a 1 year membership to Clickin Moms.  This video also is an excellent resource for those who have taken my Color Fixing Workshop.

Enjoy – and let me know what questions you have?

    Am I missing something about the contest? When I click the link, it can’t find the page. I sure would like to enter!

    Excellent. I love these tutorials. I’m curious about the color correction method by looking at the percents of RGB and adjusting colors to enhance opposite colors. Very interesting stuff. Thanks Jodi, it’s wonderful that you share like this.

    Thank you. Always look forward to tutorials. I would like to know the “correct” numbers for skin correction… like at the beginning of the tutorial how you said more this less that to these specifications…

    Jodi-
    I so appreciate your generosity in sharing your knowledge with us all. Your instruction is always so very clear. I’m just this week digging into Varis’s Skin and Margulis’s Color Correction, and your very timely video is helping me to see their written instruction in action. Thank you so very much!
