      Can anyone help please?
      A student of mine wants to change skin tones in 2 portraits, as part of
      a project "Thinking Out Of The Box" examining racial stereotyping.

      Is there any quick and easy way of changing from european skin to black
      and vice versa in Photoshop 7?

      All I could think of was working in 16 bit RGB or CMYK mode from a NEF
      file, selecting the skin and lips separately, then using curves, colour
      balance or selective colour balance layers to adjust the amounts of cyan
      magenta and yellow accordingly.

      Suggestions welcomed!

      Hi Use the colour option in the painting mode, delineate the skin in question and paint it the required colour. I m colour blind as far as race is concerned

        Hi

        Use the "colour" option in the painting mode, delineate the skin in question
        and paint it the required colour. I'm colour blind as far as race is
        concerned but this is a contentious issue.

        Chris.

        Incidentally many Europeans have dark skins anyway.

            Howard, i cannot advice on the how to, but did you consider that the end result will look strange? i mean with different colored complexions come different face characteristics. can you imagine how a white person look like with black skin? more like soot covered than natural...

            enjoy, kostas
