In this video I demonstrate how to set up the different layers needed to separate out the different frequencies for easy skin smoothing. This involves a clever use of Blend Mode options and Gausian Blur.

This comprehensive video takes you step-by-step through the complete process from beginning images clear through to the final composite image. This training video was recorded in Photoshop Elements 15 but the techniques used will work just as well in Photoshop Elements 11 through the latest Photoshop Elements.

This video is based on a very informative blog post that I found by Elias Lopez from 2011. Here is the link to that blog post:
