Ok so according to CMYK %'s this picture is spot on...or close to anyway. I usually check on foreheads, right below the eye in the corner and usually right below the lip area. I try to avoid areas that are naturally more red than other spots. So why does he look all pale and sickly in this first one (to me he does anyway)? I changed it and went with what my eye thinks is best. We are Hispanic so our skin is naturally a bit more yellow. I guess it doesn't really matter much since I'm the one who will be printing and what matters most is what I see in my prints right? But just thought I'd share anyway and get your thoughts on this. This is my brother btw. I am re-editing some pictures from last year. I love going back through folders sometimes to see what I've missed.
cmyk %'s for this one were: C-19 M-41 Y-48 K-1
And what I think looks good.
C-12 M-38 Y-48 K-0
the second might be a bit too yellow. I can definitely tone that down a bit. But the %'s won't be exact at all even if I do that. Strange. I don't trust that I am calibrated properly either even though I've calibrated I don't know how many times now! Ugh! Anyone else here calibrated that can confirm which picture looks better?
