Have you ever wondered why ACR and Lightroom are so good with skin tone selections, but the native tools in Photoshop are antiquated? I have. It baffles me that masking is so easy to do in a program that just recently received masking. Yet Photoshop, which has had masking since 1994, has horrible options for selecting skin tones easily.
In this video, I will show you four methods for selecting skin tones. Two of them are poor, but we have to talk about them, and two of them will make incredible skin tone selections. One of them actually uses ACR as a filter to create the mask in Photoshop.
Yes, the impossible IS possible!
