Fix Skin Tone with Mask
By creating an adjustment layer with a mask (another overlying protective layer), we can apply color fixes to just part of a photo. This is particularly useful when, as in this example, light reflecting off the nearby hydrangeas adds a pink cast to the skin tone. We used this same method to add “fill flash” on page 54. (See extra bits on page 80.)
Be sure to save your changes before closing the photo.
