How to create tan lines

#1
Good evening!

Going against all ideas of removing tan lines I need to know how to create them.
If anyone can help me, I will be grateful!

Hello and welcome.

Just add a solid color adjustment layer to the color of the tan...........then invert it's layer mask. This will always be quickly adjustable.

Create a selection of the area you wish to be tan, add to the SCAL layer mask.

If this does not make sense, let me know and I will make a quick tutorial.

Thanks for trying to help me!
Actually my knowledge is very basic and I need to create a poster that shows the tan lines.
I really believe I will need a tutorial if you can help me.

Do you have any knowledge of Ps layer masking? Do you have knowledge on making selections?

If you have no knowledge on Ps layer masking then you need to start here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=photoshop+layer+masks+for+beginners

If you have no knowledge on making selections then you need to start here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=photoshop+selection+tools+for+beginners
