        Re: Frequency Separation on iPhone

        I've pointed out the origination of some of these things in other threads, in that frequency separation was really born from edge finding techniques. What you set up here is a road to nowhere. iOS has no color engine for sorting out profile data. It has only a few editing tools that would even allow the use of blending modes and layers, and yet you placed a GUI on top of this rather than distributing it as a library to be implemented by other apps. The code to accomplish this is simple enough that I wouldn't use a random API anyway. I fail to see the point beyond showing that you can write code for an anti-aliasing filter.

          What is this all about klev? I'm not the author of the app. The app does the job and that's enough for a mobile device. I guess nobody is going into full time retouching using an iPhone. It's just for fun.

            I wasn't referring to that. I did however miss the bottom of the pdf. I thought you could just save out something separate that way, although I would say a good Poisson solver would be the way to go rather than something that requires layers .

            Also yeah I get that iphone apps tend to be more for fun than anything. I'm working on one myself.

              Sure, image editing on an iPhone is more about fun than anything else, but that's what people thought about computers in the past, and look where we are now I think it will be more useful to start something on the phone and be able to continue the work on a desktop computer.

              And good luck on coding your app, hope to see it soon on appstore.

                I see Iphone and ipad being used instead of todays tablets, also as palette pickers etc. and for drawing, sketching, painting. Especially once the pressure sensitivity arrives. I can imagine myself working on a tablet, no problem, but neither software, or hardware is there yet.

                  I don't know that I see it that way. Doing something on your phone is nice in that it gives instant gratification. The tools that I think work really well there are those that stand on their own in that space rather than a way to start something to be continued later. An iPad could be different if you had the ability to assume sRGB. There are a couple apps with great features and well designed brushes, but they don't seem to do that well. Even the really good ones have only a few thousand reviews. The most successful ones so far have been designed to be self contained on your phone.

                  It will be a while.

                    "asymmetric" frequency separation?
                    by drode
                    While I'm no expert on the technique, I use frequency separation regularly bu I have no clue what asymmetric frequency separation is or how I might make use of it.

                    Could anyone explain it to me or point me to a reference? Google and a local search here didn't turn up much that helped....

                    Is it destructive? Like, if You are doing with 10px brush high and low pass both, is it really destructive? Is D&B better or there isn't really big difference? I'm quite new to this technique.

                    Frequency Separation is evil
                    by Doug Nelson
                    I've made no secret of my opinion of frequency separation during the RetouchPRO LIVE shows and here in the forums. I think it's a shortcut, and therefore a compromise. Good for assembly-line retouching of senior portraits maybe, but not so much if you're aiming for the cover of Vogue.

                    this frequency separation you all speak of...

                    show me the way to it

                    j/k, I was wondering if there is an ultimate tutorial on this tech, so far I only found some really poor elaborated ones on youtube.

                    thanks

                    Frequency selection help
                    by shizam1
                    Ok, I had some real problems with the photo below. I couldn't find a frequency that worked well for me. Usually I blur the image until the color is smooth and not showing details... which ended up being a radius of 20 or more for the cheek on the left side.

                    My main problem with frequency...
