In this tutorial I will show you how to change a skin tone from really pale to really dark. You'll know how to edit a rescource kit skin file to be a dark as you want or as light as you want with just a few clicks.
Open the skin texture in photoshop (For our example we will be using a Victoria 4 face skin texture, specifically the Alpha Rescource kit 2 by Sarsa available at DAZ.)
Go to the menu bar at the top of the screen and go to Layers, then new adjustment layer, then Curves. Click okay on the “New Layer” dialogue.
Name the action whatever you want and click “Record”.
Now begin your postwork. Everything you do will be recorded in the actions window. (Hint: You should always start with “Duplicate Layer” and end with “Flatten Image”.) When you are done, click “Stop Playing/Recording”.
