Quickly Select Skin Tones in Photoshop CS6

Quickly Select Skin Tones in Photoshop CS6


This tutorial will show you how to quickly select skin tones using Photoshop CS6.


So firstly we need a photo with  some skin in it. In this example I have used the image below.

Now for the easy bit, Select -> Colour Range

Colour-Range Menu

Now choose – Skin Tones

Now choose your preferred preview type.

You will have most of the skin tones selected. You may need to remove some incorrect selections.

This way is ok but I prefer to do it manually in colour range by selecting the tones I want to use.
