New Lightroom User - Best Technique for Sunburn Removal
I just installed Lightroom about an hour ago so please be gentle with me.

What is the simplest technique for removing a sunburn. As you can see the face of the father is dramatically different than others in the photo. I have been playing around with the adjustment brush in the advanced mode with the saturation. Is this the best method?

Thanks,

MD

You're looking for the Lightroom Adjustment Brush - here's the Adobe page on this.

I've done the easy part - now you need to figure out what color adjustments need to be made. I might suggest you google something like "photoshop fix sunburn" as a start.

I made an adjustment in the hue and saturation in the red color. Thanks for the help.
