This is my first tutorial here. I am using Adobe Photoshop CS2 here. I feel this is the simple yet effective trick to make one’s complexion fair in photoshop. Basically this trick works up on wheatish type complexions to make them fair.
So lets start our tutorial and see How to create fair complexion in adobe photoshop
Here first have a look at the final preview..
Open up your document file..
Press “Q” to enter quick mask mode. Then Press “B” to select a round brush.
Now start coloring the skin like I did here.
After you are done press “Q” again to exit quick mask mode
Now hold “Ctrl” and press “I” to invert selection.
Newbie Hint : This is necessary because when you exit back from quick mask mode the part which is not in red color gets selected. Inverting the selection will select the red part
Now follow these menu Layer > New Adjustment Layer > and click “Color Balance”
Name the layer as “Complexion” or what ever you want
Now move the three Red Green Blue sliders to +25.
Follow the above step to shadows and highlights too and uncheck the “Preserve Luminosity” checkbox.
Now click OK
Adjust the layer opacity settings for the layer “Complexion” as per the image background to make it look natural.
Thats it you got your fair complexion.
