I thought I was seeing things… a whole page of little blue men! But no, it was just improperly color-balanced photos!
But it gave me a chance to give you something JUST FOR PSE USERS!! (whoohoo the crowd goes wild!)
I was going over the yearbook pages the students worked on, and found an entire page of little blue wrestlers. I needed a quick, easy way to teach the kids to fix them – and found a great little tool only available in PSE.
Go to Enhance>Adjust Color>Adjust Color for Skin Tone:
and you will get this dialog box:
notice there are no sliders on the lines! To get those, you have to move your cursor over a part of your image that should be skin colored, and click – you will see the image change, and you will have sliders!
The computer has taken it’s best guess as to how you’d like the color adjusted – you can fine tune by moving the sliders, or clicking on a different part of the image for a different result!
Super quick, super easy and works great!
PS users, you’ll have to take our Fix your Pix class to learn how to do this in Photoshop!
Now go find your own little blue (or red or orange or green) men!
