16-bit TIFF Flesh tone correction (PS6)
Jun 11, 2001

I've been using the D30 color correction technique described at Lonestar Digital:


It works pretty well. My only problem though has been that PS6's Selective Color edits aren't available for 16-bit TIFFs.

However, profile conversion is. So why not create a color profile based on the selective color changes? Here's a first stab at it:


To use it, download and install on your system. Load an image you wish to alter, and assign it the profile "d30-brittenson". (Image-> Mode-> Assign Profile...) Then convert the image to whatever you profile you want to use (I use PS6's default, IEC sRGB) -- with Image-> Mode-> Convert to Profile... Easily automated. You'll see the changes immediately when you checkmark the profile (in the Assign dialog), so if you don't like it simply cancel out of the dialog.

There are some very minor luminance differences; the profile has a slight tendency to raise shadow luminosity compared to the selective color edit method.

Let me know how it works!
