Best Way to Alter / Lighten Figure Skin Color?
I just started working with CG and Daz3D and I was wondering what was the best way to alter skin color. Specifically, I'd like to make Genesis and Victoria 5 skin color lighter.
Currently, I've just been changing the color values for "Diffuse Color" and increasing (sometimes beyond 100%) the value for "Diffuse Strength." However, honestly, I don't have any real understanding of what diffuse color/strength is or how it works so I don't know if this is the right way to do this.
Does anyone know or could anyone point me to a guide on how to do something like this? I also have photoshop, so if it is possible to just edit the texture file and re-save it I could do that too, but I've never done something like that before and I don't want to accidentally mess up the original files I paid for.
Thanks for all the help in advance!
