Photoshop tutorial: Fix blown skin highlights

This post is written by RedCrown, believe me it is a powerful trick try it out it might save you some pics

Blown skin highlights is an unfortunate but common problem on portraits that are otherwise well exposed. I’ve read and tried many techniques with mixed results. So I developed this technique, using the best steps I’ve found in the work of others. Would appreciate feedback and improvements.

The process uses three common techniques. First it targets “blown” highlights using the Threshold adjustment. Then it changes that target area to a light neutral gray using Levels and Hue/Sat. Finally it paints color over the target area.

Like everyone who reads ADIDAP I am into photography and I use Adobe Lightroom to edit my pictures. I was so excited when I first started working with Adobe Lightoom until I started experiencing regular crashes while using it. And when it crashes, it crashes really hard ! My CPU usage goes up to 50% even after I kill Lightroom’s process, so I end up forced to either logoff or restart my computer.
BUT, I have discovered lately what has been causing these crashes.

nView Desktop Manager! YES, that was it!
