Request - Giving skin a golden sheen

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to blend a photograph I recently took with one I've had for awhile. I'd like to know if there's a way to make the color of a woman's neck have the same golden sheen as in the other pic.

Is this even possible?

I've tried playing around with the hue, saturation, lighting, and even sepia, but can't seem to find the right combination.

Yes, they are visible but no, my knowledge does not extend far enough to help you. Maybe one of the more experienced Paint.neters can. Anyone?

Yes, to get that skin tone:

1. dup the image.

2. on the top layer use "color filter" Set it to a yellow-ish gold color. (Setting I used H=45, F=255, P=100)

3. on the top layer Cut out whatever part you don't need to be golden.

(You siad neck so I cut out everything but the neck part.)


*There are many ways to cut out images, search for "cutting out images"
