  • A more comfortable way of Frequency Separation

    Hi everyone. I just found a more comfortable way of doing frequency separation. I always wanted to see both frequencies when choosing the blur amount. So I made an action that shows high pass and blur at the same time.
    Here is a screenshot of it.
    And the attached action file (I've tested it only on PS CC)
    Does anyone have a better solution?

    This seems smart to me. I haven't tried it yet, but thanks for sharing!
    Possibly a checkerboard pattern would be even better?

    --shift studio.

        Checkerboard doesn't let me go for high radiuses (preview) if needed. But there is a bug in the action now as it doesn't remember the blur amount to use it again in the next separation. Im now working on it to make it repeat the blur with the same radius. That's because if I press CMD+F it doesn't record as a repeating action, instead it records the exact setting of it.

            Action for Frequency Separation
            by jonathan_k
            Hey All

            I want to create a basic Photoshop CS5 action to speed up frequency separation.

            Basically, for frequency separation, what I do is make two copies of the image, the lower one of which contains the blurred tonal/colour section of the image, and upper one which contains...

            Creating action for frequency separation
            by santoro80
            I just created an action for frequency separation (according to Ar of D&B DVD). It will do the separation and name the layers "low" and "high". The problem is that it works only on a background layer. So when I want to use this action sometime later in my workflow on another...

            "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....

            Extended frequency separation
            by fraiseap
            I have been playing around with frequency separation using a couple of methods;

            1. Using surface blur to create a low frequency layer and using high pass to create a high frequncy layer and blending the two with linear light

            2. Using the Model Mayhem technique of creating...

            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.
