Saturation/desaturation brush - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Today, working on a wedding image I had to desaturate some skin tones. There is a selection brush, a dodge brush, a burn brush, but I couldnot discover a saturation/desaturation brush. I know I can make a selection etc, but often a brush like this would be very helpful. I cannot imagine the Adobe people didnot think of an item like this, so am I missing something? Or aren't these people as clever as I am? ;-)) Leen...

    Hmm, you may be right.
    Never used that tool until now. So I really missed something and the Adobe people rise in my esteem again.

    I happen to have a rather well shaped nose. I suppose there is a lot under it I don't know about.

    Cool. Thanks for sharing this Rich. I remember doing some of this in the
    darkroom excepting the "sponge" thing?

    Rich, thanks for referring to techniques of "my black and white darkroom past". At the moment I hear the Supremes on tv, so it's all retro today.

    Pete, we used a sponge with developer on high key portraits to control the slowed down process. This way we saw what came op on the paper and as soon as there was almost enough detail we used some fresh developer with a tip of the sponge on the eyes. If the eyes had sufficient density we did put it into the fixer.

    This technique worked quite well, but you were always afraid they ordered extra copies. This process was pretty hard to repeat exactly the same way. You could hardly do without a large waste bin. ;-))
