Re: Fix blown skin highs tutorial
In reply to Redcrown, Mar 18, 2010


I have an image with blown highlights on the forehead of an African American man. I attempted your tutorial with limited success. In step one, I used a threshold level of 210, which seemed to work better on darker skin. I still was only able to fill in the brightest highlights. Do you have any further suggestions on how to make this work for dark skin with contrasty highlights.

I also wanted to find out how to add to the selection once you have already filled it with color (step 4).

Thanks for your help,
