It’s time to correct red skin captured in your images quickly.

One of the problems you will encounter when photographing people is Skin redness. It usually shows up around the nose, close to the eyes and on the cheeks. Skin that looks too red can make people look tired, sick, old, or just bad.

Thankfully there is a simple fix that will work every time.

Correct Skin Color

Using a Hue/Saturation Layer
In this episode we show you how to use a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer to pinpoint the redness and get rid of it for good.

We start by selecting REDS from the drop down menu that is on MASTER by default. After selecting the reds we bring up the Saturation as high as possible to see what Colors we are actually effecting. Then we use the slider on the bottom to narrow in the focus of Color and move it left and right until only the area we want to change becomes highlighted.

After the selection is bright red, bring the Saturation back down to 0 and adjust the Hue slider to the right. In this image we use a +25 Hue but that will change depending on the Colors in your image. Once you set the Hue correctly you are done!
