How to Airbrush Skin With Frequency Separation

[td_smart_list_end]

Need to Use the Healing Brush?

Good thing we used nondestructive editing techniques! Because if you didn’t, you would have had to start again from scratch.

To make direct edits to the image, doubleclick on the Smart Object layer. Photoshop will open the layer in a new document. You can make the adjustments here. When you’re done, just save and close the document and your main document will be updated with the adjustments you just made. Also, your frequency layers will be updated too so you don’t need to redo everything.

Tip: If you need to use the Healing Brush tool, do it on a separate layer. Create the layer then select the Healing Brush tool. In the option bar located below the menus, enable the “Sample All Layers” option. Now you can use the Healing Brush on a separate layer.
