Photoshop Elements- 2 questions about Skin Tan lines. I need detailed step-by-step instructions, please. (the bandaid clone tool does not do what we would like to look realistic). 

 1. How do I remove tan lines on leg at the bottom of shorts? The bandaid tool that matches area does not seem to be thr best approach.

2. How do I make feet in high heels that are extremley white (tennis player has legs tanned but feet are white because of shoes). How do I make the feet tan. That are in black stappy high heels?

There are several different approaches to take.  Here are a couple:

 

  1. Use the color picker to choose the desired color for the white skin
  2. Use the Brush Tool (B) and select the Color mode in the tool options

Try this:

1. Open the picture file. I used the one with the shoes for demonstration

2. Activate the Magnetic lasso tool and make a selection of  the white skin of the left foot.

3. Once the selection is complete, place it in its own layer. Press  CTRL+J

4. Open a Hue/saturation adjustment layer above this and link the 2 layers. Press CTRL+G

5. In the dialog that opens, check the "Colorize" box, and work the Hue/saturation/lightness sliders to match the skin tone of the left

I've moved your post from Photoshop to Photoshop Elements for you. They might ask you to post an image so they can better assist.

This will be difficult to provide help with for many:  PSE 2 was released 21 years ago.   For example:  I can't even get the installer to work on my computer.  A previous thread spoke about it not working if you had more than 1 TB of free space on your hard disk.

Some may see your request for help.

I'm curious: what district is having kids use software that is more than 20 years old?

Or perhaps those old school kids have been taught sufficient grammar, punctuation and comprehension to understand when there is more than one question on the test.  😜
