Frecuency separation Photoshop action




  • Frecuency separation 8 Bit
  • Frecuency separation 16 Bit


Frequency separation is a tried-and-true Photoshop process used by portrait photographers. The process puts high and low-frequency information onto different layers.

High-frequency information is about the fine details. These include hair, texture, pores, fine lines, and skin imperfections.

Low frequencies carry information about shadows, tone and colours.

Separating low and high-frequency information onto different layers means that you can retouch one without affecting the other. You can smooth the skin’s texture without affecting the colour. Or you can lighten shadows without changing skin texture.

This allows for more precise skin retouching.



With this photoshop action you´ll crazy amount of time creating the process to get to the point where you can actually do the retouching and is what i always use and I recomend it to photoshographer who retouch high end.


  • Technical specifications:

    Please note that these photoshop actions are not “one-click” and you’re done - photos won’t be ready-to-go as soon as they are applied, changes must be made depending on your photo. Exposure, temperature changes, and some color changes will need to be adjusted for each photo once applied, depending on your camera’s settings while shooting, as well as your personal taste.

    These photoshop actions are specifically designed for raw and tiff image files in mind but you can apply them on JPG files too.
