Expertly applied makeup as well as good lighting form the basis for beautiful skin, with photo retouching serving as the polish.

In this particular tutorial, you will learn a fantastic technique for using Adobe Photoshop to do skin retouching, which happens to be the Frequency Separation.

The digital age has had a long history with Retouching. Frequency separation happens to be a contemporary process which gives you total control over colors and textures in images.

The steps for ensuring functional layers seem to be quite technical, providing you with a possibility of effecting touch ups without losing or damaging the skin texture in your photo.

Time is precious. The sooner you are done with your editing, the sooner you can progress to other projects. I hope you found this tutorial particularly helpful:

  • Learn the most effective methods for getting rid of and reducing distractions while maintaining all the details that make the image of a person unique.
