**some background and complaint from beginning, scroll down to my main question 🙂 **
I've used Imagenomics Portraiture for fast skin retouch since 2017
with the lack of their PR and lack of communication on all of their channels
(could be my lack of search skills
but website, facebook, twitter all seem to have stopped updating from mid to late 2020)
I am seriously considering finding alternative for skin retouch plugin for my m1 mac mini.
Sure I can run my Photohop on Rosetta 2 to use the plugin
but switching from Lightroom to Phosohop (directly cmd+e while its closed) instantly disables this option
I need to have Photoshop open and then go back to Lightroom and cmd+e to work Rosetta2 version of Photoshop to work.
Anyone know of a good photoshop skin retouch plugin
that will work with native m1 support version of Photoshop
(or in the progress of developing)?

Have you tried negative Clarity in the Camera RAW filter? It is quick and easy and really quite effective.
thx for reminding me of that option!
totally forgot I could use that one 😆
don't really recall why I didn't implement the "clarity" method,
maybe it's b/c I had perfectly functioning plugin at hand when it first debuted.
guess it's time I get to reeeeally dig in on that function and see if it can replace the portraiture plugin.
Many use the "frequency separation" method to isolate the low frequency for blurring in selected areas (smart blur/surface blur), while retaining the high frequency detail without blurring so as to retain some natural skin texture:
Thx for the reply!
holy molly your action set is way more comprehensive than simple action set I made and used!
never really got around to build muscle memory for F/S
but I'll def look into this to implement to my workflow 😄
I would not use a plugin. I would go for tools.
The reason, every picture varies. So there is no one plugin that will do it perfectly for every image.
Granted, as time goes on... we will see more AI/Neural Filters/Other Filters that can do it. But right now to me those still look fake. Maybe in time, they will get better (in fact, I know they will). But until then I would just do things by hand.
There are tons of videos on YouTube that will help you learn how to master this through various techniques. Find which technique is easier for you. But master two or three techniques as not all techniques will work for each image. So if you learn a few ways to do it, then you will be able to rock it.
I have tried this plugin, I've gotten great results. however the price does benefit any good, its a bit slow it's like doing the whole thing manually, I usually use droplets atop of it, it has helped.
