Been using PS since 192 and Affinity Photo is looking great guys. Well done :)
Trying to get my head round FS (frequency Separation). It creates two layers, but I'm not sure what to do with them?
I've tried making a mask on the top layer and painting-in (or out) the areas I want affected, but nothing is happenning.
Checked all the brushes are correct, ie 100percent, black, normal blend etc. Nothing :(
any clues how I get my image to actually show what the filter has done?
Obviously missing something obvious :)

I have exactly the same problem.

I also struggle with this problem. When i follow the video, @1:41 begins the painting-in but nothing is happening at my photo. I already found out that is have to select an area first, but still nothing happening (no spots disappear)

 

 I will try to follow the tutorial video again with another photo and watch the vid @manuschwendener.ch is referring to.

You don't mask either layer. You correct any color or tone flaws in the low frequency layer and you correct any detail flaws in the high frequency layer. It is possible for some flaw to exist on both layers, in which case, you have to retouch both.

Once you've edited the low and high frequency layers how do you merge them back into being a single pixel layer that you can then do more editing on?

Right-click the high frequency layer and choose 'Merge Down'.

The video 'Nature portrait start to finish'

has also a long part about frequency separation, starting at 1'07''

Excellent. Lucid demo of frequency separations. You returned this beautiful woman to her teens. Almost.
