Oh well its not a blemish. But at the begining of a senior shoot, I took some pictures where there was some discoloring on his face. You can see it just to the left of his nose. I'm looking for recommendations to remove this.

I use photoshop. So I'm thinking magic wand and then tint and desaturate adjustments. This seems like I'm making it more difficult than it should be. Any other ideas?

Could I do this with a filter?

I cant see what you are seeing, but I have it narrowed down to three possibilites. Are we talking green, red or blue? (In reality, I don't think it is as bad as you think, if I can't even be sure what area it is.)

OK, that's actually his right, but who's counting.

One way to work it is to desaturate the area. I made 3 layers, set the middle layer to monochome (Channel mixer, Red +115, Green -10, Blue -5), then I erased away the top layer using a very soft edge brush at only 5% opacity.

The problem with the healing brush solution is that you also alter his natural facial shape by flattening out this crease.

Like Rad said the healing brush is not the best since it flattens. It was my first choice but kept look wrong. So I'll try Rad's idea. Any others?

I am prowd of one thing here. 95% of my shots he has his eye's open. He blinks in front of a camera at the rate of about 30 times a minute. It just seems to be his reaction. His mom warned me. When told that they didn't have very many family portraits of him with his eyes open I inquired as to why they hadn't told the photographer, after all he's a professional. They've not used a professional before. After this, they may change their mind.

I tried Rad's, But some how I'm retarded. I didn't get it.

But I did try Hue/Saturation of Hue -10, Saturation -6 and lightness +12.

Use the clone tool to add the crease back.

Or just set the healing brush mode to color.

OK, now THAT is a good idea. Best of both worlds.

Here's with color mode followed by luminosity mode. But the crease would have to be replaced.

The problem with color mode was it looks a little B&W, so Lum lightened it up. I guess I could have used lighten.

If it looked black and white you probly just needed a different reference point to copy from.
