Re: Skin Tone

Can anyone tell me what photo editor/plugin is used by Metart and others to produce such perfect skin tones?

IMO getting the desired skintones is not so much about using any particular editing software much less plugin, and more about getting a white balance that produces the desired tones, maybe where necessary supplemented by local controls and/or adjustments global across the image but limited to particular colors. Sometimes global curve adjustments have tonality effects that you may see as impacting this too.

And then you throw into the mix the subject's natural skintones plus makeup, spray-tan, actual suntans, etc.

And of course "perfect skin tones" is subjective. I know somebody with a master's degree in photography who produces photos with skintones that to me make the subjects look cyanotic.
