Remove Blemishes and Improve Skin Tones without Loosing Skin Texture

Gary Detonnancourt

When retouching portraits it's very easy to overdue the skin smoothing effects in image editing programs.  The result is a person with very fake looking skin because it has no texture.  A technique I've used to solve this problem is called frequency separation.  You can find many videos or tutorials online on this subject but here is a concise article that will show you how to do it on your images.

Frequency Separation Retouching will allow you to do just that! It will allow you to fix all the usual facial issues like removing wrinkles, bags under eyes, and blemishes. By dividing your image into two separate frequency layers, one layer being high frequency digital data, which contains the information of detail in the image, and a low frequency layer which contains the tonal and color information of the image.
