These actions by SparkleStock are easy-to-use. Simply play the action then paint over the areas that you want to retouch.

To retouch skin, simply play an action then paint over the areas that you want to retouch. They’re extremely easy to use and a rough paint will work – you don’t need to be too precise.

The skin airbrushing action makes skin look smoother without losing skin details.

Note: The video uses the SparkleStock version of this action that contains 20 retouching actions rather than 5.

  1. Hi Photoshop Tutorials.

    I purchased a Photoshop action bundle from Etsy and I’m here to tell you that they stole your free skin actions and selling it in their bundle. I sent you a message through the contact form but did not hear back yet.

  2. I couldn’t get the zxp to work… it gives me an error eventhough I have the latest version of Photoshop CC.

    I used the atn and it worked. But do I need the zxp?

  3. Very happy with these actions. Basically the actions use frequency separation but call it airbrushing. Layers are organized and I can go in to the filter and change the settings.
