Photoshop Tutorial: How to Retouch Skin Flawlessly with Frequency Separation



Photoshop CC 2015 tutorial showing possibly the best technique to retouch skin in a photo. “Frequency Separation” retains the skin’s texture, while it removes blotches and imperfections. The result is flawless, realistic-looking skin without that “plastic”, overworked look.

    Be sure your pictures exports RGB 8 for these settings!! Otherwise the settings won’t work if your export is an RGB 16!!!!!!! It took me awhile to figure that out. I only wished that tutorials would’ve mentioned that important step!

    Adobe replaced Refine Edge with "Select and Mask". If you want Refine Edge, Shift-click "Select and Mask"!!!!

    Allright i didn't plan to be mean but you get how frustrating is to try and try and get the same result.. Why doesn't it work? I did every step exactly as you and it darkens the selected area, when it should be blurring….

    On 2:50, I thought your Texture layer was visible at this time but your screen shows active…. that's strange, because if I make mine active the image looks blur at this time

    I got stuck on the "feather" part I couldn't find the refine edge button on photoshop 2019. However I found a shortcut to figure out the correct feather amount. first click the lasso tool to select an area then click q on the keyboard to view the feather blend. adjust the feather until you find the correct feather blend.
