Any tutorials on skin tone correction with the vectorscope?

Recommended Posts

I want to use Affinity Photo to correct film scans so that I have a systematic way to correct skin tones using the vectorscope. 

I have seen some tutorials with video editors, and I wonder if there are any good workflow examples with AP. 


I come from Lightroom and I am new to AP, so many things I do is still very inefficient. For example, when I want the vectorscope to only measure the skin I do:

crop part of skin -> adjust tones with wb adjustment layer -> copy wb adjustment layer -> go back in history to undo crop -> paste wb adjustment layer. 

There has to be a more elegant way?

You can use the same process in Affinity Photo, once you've added and adjusted the White Balance Adjustment  to your liking you can then create a preset within the same panel. This preset will then be available to quickly select from the White Balance adjustment, which will make the process quicker.

Another method would be to use the Selective Colour Adjustment instead of White balance, changing the Colour to Yellow and then reducing the Yellow slider usually gets good results. Again a preset can be created to make future adjustments quicker.
