I'm trying to change skin color in photoshop to something more pale. I've heard adding a layer and setting it to 'hue' does this, but when I try, the change is absolutely minimal. To see if I was wrong, I tried painting over the shirt in the photo, and it didn't change at all, either.
do i need to make a duplicate layer of the background first? I've also tried messing around with the opacity and brush hardness, but nothing seems to be working.
I'm very new to photoshop (as in, I started today) so I'm really not sure what I'm asking or what's 'broken'. The hue blend tutorials I've seen don't work the same way for me as they do in the tutorial.
