Pale face

Hi everyone,
Seems a simple thing but I have a friend who I recently did some portraits for. She was happy with the images but felt she looked a little pale. I would welcome some advice on how to make her skin a little less pale. I have tried a few things like warm up filters etc but it didn't do much to change the skin tone. Any help would be appreciated.
Regards
Gerry

Hi Gerry! How're things?

Make a duplicate layer and make a loose selection of her face with the lasoo tool and about a 20-pixel 'feather'. Go into the colour adjustment tool (can't remember its proper name for the life of me and give the magenta a tweak...

Adjust the feather as needed if 20 is not right.

Ctrl-E to merge the layers and your done.

Hi Mike,

Many thanks for that info will give it a whirl. I thought the PM spread was very good although I think they could have trimmed my fat face down a little.

LOL...I think that might be too much work, Gerry.
It took long enough time to put some hair on Mike.... lol
