Part 4. Advanced Photo Fixing > Adjusting Skin Tones

Adjusting Skin Tones

New to Photoshop Elements 4 is a handy command designed specifically to fix “off” skin tones in photos of people. You can compensate for poor lighting by lightening or darkening skin tones and changing the picture's yellow/pink balance, and you can also adjust overall lighting of the scene.

With a picture in the active image area, choose Enhance, Adjust Color Adjust Color for Skin Tone.

Click on a patch of skin in the image. Elements adjusts all the skin tones in that range within the picture.

To refine the skin tones, click and drag the Tan and Blush sliders.

Click and drag the Temperature slider to make the entire image look warmer or cooler.
