Need help changing skin tone. I've seen people completely change someone's skin to look green like the Hulk's or Randy Couture with his Capt. American skin. How is this done? It seems like when I cut somebody's face to place it somewhere I have a hard time matching skin tones. I googled it, but I couldn't find a lot of help and since I've seen some masterpieces here, I figure this was better than google. Thanks in advance!

For matching skin tones, I usually use: Image - Adjustments - Levels (match the skin brightness and contrast) and Image - adjustments - Hue/Saturation (match color) Use the dropdown menu in the Hue/Sat window to further refine the colors.

Getting the saturation correct is usually my first step and can take you most of the way there. Then using the color burn tool to add shadowing and the color dodge tool to add highlights where needed is great. Also be carefull with proportions. When putting the "new face" over the old one, I lower the opacity of the new face so I can see the old one through it. Then using the free transform tool, I make sure that I scale and move the new face so the eyes, nose and mouth all line up with the old face. Next use a soft eraser to remove the edges of the new face, so that it blends with the old. (dont forget to set the opacity of the new face to 100% at this point). Then add any color/tinting that the picture might require.
