Hue/Saturation Eyedropper Tool for Skin

Recommended Posts

I use the eyedropper tool and sliders all the time to isolate and take red out of skin. Is there a way to do this in Affinity Photo? This would seriously be a deal breaker for me.I use the saturation and lightness sliders as well. I change the channel to red, use the eye dropper tool and click on the red I want to remove in the skin, I move the Hue slider to the left so I can see what area of the skin I am effecting, take the sliders below and push the right and middle sliders together until it isolates just the red in the skin, but doesn't effect the other area. I can then slide the hue towards yellow. Brush of the lips and I have the most perfect base of skin.

Hi cmcurly,


Welcome to the forum.


You can use the brush selection tool to select the are of the skin that you wish to alter and then alley a HSL Adjustment layer and make your adjustment to the red channel and this will only be applied to the selected area.
