Don't know if this will help or not, depends on the program you're using: http://www.smugmug.com/help/skin-tone

Tasha, what did you do with your play? That might be my favorite edit. But I've been looking at this face so much, it's hard to tell anymore. :lol:

Anxious-annie, thanks for the link. I have seen that one before and I can't do it with elements. :(

uuummmmm.....

:lol:

I slid the WB to the warmer side by 9 (i think) and then added a tiny but if black, a tiny bit of contrast, then a tiny but of saturation.

Totally a science.

:rofl:

I swear, this is my last attempt. If this still sucks, I'm done. Lol.

I think your 3rd? on the first page was the best one. He's just all kinds of weird -- orange, yellow, red and cyan all at once!

Vic, the parents won't notice if he's a tad bit off in either direction, just make him the closest towards the direction he is in real life and you're good to go :)

I feel your frustration. I don't often have white balance or colour issues anymore, and that would seriously drive me mad to edit this photo! LOL!

Can you make it b&w? Would that solve your problem? The colors look off on all the pics, but I'm not calibrated. I wonder if it's the blanket that's making it hard to fix?? I'm not expert, so I'm just telling you how it looks to me. He's super cute and it's a cute photo, but the colors are just off.

Ok good, sounds like a plan. My ILP mentor agreed with you Blue that the 3rd one down looks good so I'm goin with that! No more editing, lol! I'll post the others from the session sometime soon. :D
