I frequently do portrait editing on age lines, wrinkles and bags under the eyes. All images have some underlying texture depending on camera, image size, ISO... When I retouch images, especially if I am using the bursh tool I do not want to disturb the underlying testure. I just want to lighten or modify the color while retaining the base pattern of the image. I always end up smoothing the area where the brush is used. I there any way to prevent that.

Moderators can edit your post for you. Is it the typos in "brush", "texture", and "Is"? Let us know and we can fix it.

There use to be a way to update a post. Does this no longer exist? It seems crazy to ask a moderator to correct a post when I just want to fix a typo like correcting teh to the. seemt to seems. I appreciate the offer but, This is a silly waste of resources for both you and me. Will the ability to edit a post be returned?

Apparently it was being abused by a few, so Adobe staff removed it. As to what will happen in the future, we tend to find out when Adobe makes a change.

Use Frequency separation, if you actually want to lighten areas. Otherwise just one of the blend modes like color or screen.

Earth has a great way to use Frequency Separation, He has some actions to help set it up, but it you want to know the mechanics of how to do that, watch the other video, but definitely watch Earth's tutorial!
