Fix Blown Out Skin Photoshop Tutorial
Step 1Open a photo to begin. Expand the file menu and select Open. Then, browse for the file and click OK.
Step 2Click on the button in the layers pallet and select Invert. This will create a new Invert adjustment layer. This adjustment layer will invert the hue and brightness of the image to create a negative.
Step 3Change the blending mode to Luminosity. Then, lower the opacity until the skin tones look even. The entire image may start to lose contrast, but we will fix this later. For now, focus on the skin tones.
Step 4The skin tone looks more even now, but the Invert adjustment layer affected the entire image. We need to use a layer mask to hide the effect. Before we can do that, we need to create a selection of the skin. There are many ways to create a selection:
- Quick Selection Tool
- Magic Wand Tool
- Lasso Tool
- Color Range Selector
