Adjust Skin Tone in Photoshop Elements: Overview

            You can adjust skin tone in Photoshop Elements within images. A variety of factors in photography can cause poor-looking skin tones in your subjects. Elements provides the “Adjust for Skin Tone” command that attempts to restore human skin tones to a more natural look.

            You can adjust skin tone in Photoshop Elements for an entire layer or a selection. It’s usually a good idea to select just the areas of skin that you want to adjust using a selection tool. This helps you to not change the other elements of your image, unnecessarily.

            After making your selection, choose “Enhance| Adjust Color| Adjust Color for Skin Tone…” from the Menu Bar. Then click into an area of skin you want to change. Then click around until you achieve your desired results.
