Step 7

You can optionally add a layer mask so that this layer only affects the skin tones. However, should you need to create a layer mask, you can do this by going to Layer > Layer Mask > Hide All. Select the Brush tool (make sure your foreground color is white), then paint with a soft-edge brush around the skin. If you’re using Photoshop CS6, you can also use the skin tone feature in the Color Range tool. To do this, go to Select > Color Range. Select “Skin Tones” from the dropdown menu and enable Detect Faces. Click OK and Photoshop will create a selection of the skin tones for you.
