Cheers. I was wondering if anyone had any more physical/chemical insight - how different colours fade due to their chemical make-up and different levels of exposure on different areas etc. However, on reflection, I was probably being a bit too ambitious and your suggestion is more than adequate.

Thanks again.

Not a bad effort! The transitions in the corners are perhaps a little abrupt, and the central fade just a little uniform for my liking.

Try blending in a cloud layer to see if you can introduce some lighter and darker patches. That would break up the flesh toned area. As a subtle effect, the opacity of such a layer should be quite low.

So how? Add a new layer & Effects > Render > clouds. Leave this layer above the others & try some different combinations of blend modes and/or opacity levels (press F4 for both).
