Imaginomic’s Portraiture filter
This is my main, and usually, my only filter when I’m editing. I might use NIK once in a while, but this one all of the time.
As I point out a few times in the video, I only recommend this filter if it fits what you like your work to look like. It can be fairly light handed and only go after blemishes and still leaving the skin texture pretty much intact. Frequency separation is also very good at that although time consuming and a bit complicated.
You might download a trial version of this filter and just see how you like it.
