To enclose a shape to change the color


Recommended Posts

Hi

I would like to change the colors of a face to harmonize it with two others on the same picture, it is too pale compared to the others.

I know that there is the tool density plus and density less but they play on the tone, I would like to play also on the color (add little more red).

Would there be a way, after having enclosed this face so as not to overflow, to use by instance curves tool to play on the color ?

Thanks

Hi Nadar,  If using photo, and your picture is a pixel layer, you can use the selection tool with a feathered edge to select the face and changes will only be applied to the active selection. You could then use a gradient map to select the high mid and low tones from one of the other faces, then apply this gradient map to the other problem face. The attached video shows selection limiting curves adjustment, but I think the gradient approach will give you a better result in matching skin tones.

Thank you so much DM1 😉

your first video does not work.
Anyway it works very well with the curve.
But I have a problem with the gradient
After cut out the face and selecting the gradient, the face turns blue...

Use the colour studio gradient filter, not the fill tool. Make selection and export as new layer with mask. Add gradient to this layer. 

Tap the circles on the gradient line to open up a colour wheel and adjustment line. The line shows shadow, mid tone and highlights (though you can add many more points for greater definition). Pick one of the points on the adjustment line, (shadows) use the dropper to select a shadow tone on the desired face). Repeat for mid and highlights then save as a preset. (Save as Skin tone then you can reuse the setting. ) 

Use paintbrush on mask (black) to reveal white eyes, lips etc that you don’t want coloured.

Rough example:
